The Patricia Veale School of Dance is one of the most established schools in York with an excellent reputation of producing highly trained dancers in classical ballet, jazz, contemporary, tap and modern dance.

We offer professional ballet classes to everyone, from pre-school 2.5yrs, children, teens and adults, to progress and develop skills in technique, knowledge and artistry. The first steps of a little ballerina starts right here with nurturing and careful training for young children that develops into many exciting years through a life of a dancer.

Situated in the heart of Acomb York in our own premises, with free parking. The school is a clean and safe environment with changing facilities, office and a fully equipped dance studio with ballet barres, mirrors, music system and a professional dance floor.

These unique, fun and exciting children’s ballet classes are created to nurture young children’s desire to dance and give inspiration to engage in their first little steps in dance.

With the use of props, imagery and enchanting music children are guided into a magical themed adventure packed with interactive exercises which gives children the ability to learn basic steps and techniques along with musicality that is required for a head start in dance, whilst having fun, developing confidence and interacting with other children to develop social skills.

The school encourages parents to take part in the younger classes so you can experience and become part of the children’s calm and inviting atmosphere.
