Family ethos, with core dance training taught in a fun and stimulating approach, with 3 FREE trials as standard.


Being part of Dorking Dance School gives our children access to our award winning dance classes as well as all our extras - summer & Easter schools, theatre trips, workshops, examinations, onsie movie nights, productions & large scale dance shows.  

Dorking School of Ballet and Dance is a dance school in the heart of Dorking, offering dance lessons in Ballet, Tap, and Commercial Street.


The team that run our Dorking classes also run the award winning Reigate School of Ballet & Commercial Dance, which recently became 'overall winner' of the prestigious DANCE SCHOOL OF THE YEAR. Our teachers are extremely experienced, many with TV and Theatrical experience. TWO of Dorking's School of Dance teachers were trained as professional ballerinas at The Royal Ballet School in Richmond. All the teachers also teach at the Reigate School of Ballet and Commercial Dance, which is the largest and most established dance school in The Reigate and Redhill area.

Being part of a larger dance establishment, all of our pupils have the opportunity to take part in our huge bi-annual show, and have access to all our "extras" - Summer & Easter performing Arts Schools, Onesie Movie Nights, examinations, workshops and theatre trips. With all our extras, it brings a real family ethos to the school and with our attention to quality teaching, our award winning team Dorking are looking forward to meeting you and your child.


We teach the core fundamentals of ballet alongside more contemporary styles. The principal is an ex-Royal Ballet trained Ballerina and West-End performer. All our teachers are hand-picked by our principal/examiner and are fully DBS checked and fully qualified with the I.S.T.D. Miss Benjamin is our main teacher at Dorking and holds a high Licentiate diploma with the I.S.T.D.  for dance teaching along with many years of teaching experience in all dance forms.


We believe in teaching the basics in a friendly and fun atmosphere and our teachers would like to pass on their skills and professional experience to our new pupils.  


As standard, we offer 3 free trial classes in all our dance classes apart from babyballet®


We very much look forward to meeting you!




As a parent, I have always found it difficult to commit for a term for any activity after only one trial lesson. Young children especially, find it difficult in a new environment, new faces, other children.... and so on.


I have always maintained that offering 3 trial classes gives sufficient time for your child to settle, and then after 3 weeks, if your child still isn't enjoying the classes enough, then you leave paying nothing.
