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



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


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


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.
