OUR CLASSES

about us

Aspirations School of Dance based in Sussex, primarily offers classical ballet training for students from 5 to 19 years old. This is supplemented by a cohesive program of Acrobatic Arts, International Dance Technique, Stretch, Tap, LAMDA, and Musical Theatre together with Anatomy and Russian Language to give the dancers of today the tools they will need to succeed for tomorrow. The school also hosts a daily pre-school dance curriculum for the under-fives that affords a perfect transition into graded classes.

Founded in 2011, Aspirations has its own bespoke studios in Henfield. We are privileged to have alliances with several vocational colleges and a wealth of guest teachers some with direct links to The Vaganova Academy and Bolshoi to supplement our curriculum and give performance opportunities to our students.

Our vision

To produce a training program utilizing the already widely acclaimed Vaganova Method that allows everyone to enjoy and discover the beauty of the art of ballet and to have a curriculum that focuses not only on the physical aspects of dance but mental well-being and academic success.

our mission

Aspirations aims to offer a substantial dance curriculum with great attention to dance techniques and a strong emphasis on injury prevention.

To make dance available to everyone – children and adults. 

To provide a foundation platform for those dancers who wish to pursue the arts as a professional career.

Our values

#dancefamily

Family is not always about blood; it’s about being with a group of people who want you in their life. People who accept you for who you are. People who support you through the good times and bad. People who will always be there when all else fails, people who love you no matter what.

supportive

Encouraging excellence for students in recreational dance enabling them to then pursue pre-professional dance programs and eventually professional college entry

family-orientated

The school has earned a reputation for being an exceptional family orientated place for learning – and sharing – the art of dance.

inspirational

Aspirations School of Dance creates an environment built on a philosophy that inspires the artist in each and every child, regardless of their age and ability.

Testimonials

My daughter has been with ASD for over five years now. Not only has she been been taught to dance but she has also gained a dance family.

She has performed on stage and undertaken exams with a confidence that can only be nurtured by a talented dance teacher.

She is so happy at this dance school that I foresee that she will be dancing with ASD for many years to come.

Aspirations Dance

Aspirations Dance is no ordinary dance school. The school is strict and certainly not just 'an afterschool club' but every lesson is taught with total devotion, dedication and love. All children are treated equally in an unrivalled family atmosphere.
