Welcome to Elina Patrou Academy of Dance, formerly known as The Van Niekerk Academy of Dance

Our school follows the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus offering recreational and vocational classes from Nursery Ballet to Advanced 2. 

We also teach Discovering Repertoire a classical ballet performance programme, which gives students the opportunity to learn variations from famous ballets, such as Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake and the Nutcracker.

 

Dedicated students, who achieve high exam results, have the opportunity to perform in Dance Festivals in and around London.   

 

Our ballet school is housed within The Canons Park Community Centre and ballet classes take place in two beautiful studios, with ballet barres and sprung floors, providing our dancers within an ideal environment in which to enjoy dance.
