Turning Pointe School of Dance

Welcome to Turning Pointe - Ballet, Tap, Contemporary, Modern and Musical Theatre classes for children and adults across Sussex

With spacious studios in Haywards Heath, Lindfield, Lewes, Barcombe and Plumpton, we offer classes across Sussex in an exciting range of dance styles including Ballet, Pointe work, Modern, Tap, Contemporary and Musical Theatre. Boys and girls are accepted from 18-months old (into our wonderfully creative pre-school classes) all the way up to Advanced level, including specialist adult Ballet and Tap classes. Click here for Turning Pointe's current timetable.

I lead a team of committed, experienced and highly qualified staff in a fun yet professional environment. Our pupils are prepared for RAD and ISTD exams, as well as having the opportunity to perform on stage in our famously spectacular productions. Holiday workshops and theatre trips help to give pupils a rounded experience.

At Turning Pointe we value every pupil as an individual, and whether they intend to have a career in the performing arts or just enjoy our lessons as a hobby and form of exercise, the escapism and enjoyment they gain from classes is just as important. Many of our former students have gone on to train at some of the most prestigious conservatoires in the world, including The Royal Ballet School, London Studio Centre, The BRIT School, London Contemporary School of Dance, Trinity Laban, Northern School of Contemporary Dance, Tring Park, Hamburg Ballet School, and the Royal Conservatoire, Antwerp.

We hope to inspire and develop self-confidence, creativity and a passion for dance in every child that will last forever.
