• The School

    The Nicky Jenks School of Dance was established in 1991 and offers a range of classes for all ages and abilities. These are held in Bishop’s Lydeard, Milverton, Wiveliscombe, Cotford St Luke and Norton Fitzwarren.

    Pupils are encouraged to participate in Shows, Fetes, Dance or Arts Festivals (Competitions) and other activities, including the schools own biannual Show.

    Students have the opportunity to take advantage of Workshops and Courses held by the Royal Academy of Dance, the world’s most influential dance education and training organisations, its Classical Ballet examination syllabus is regarded as the best. We are very fortunate in having one of the most active Regions and the classes they offer are extremely well attended from all over the South West. Places at these lessons have been taken by members of the school and are offered as appropriate.

    Children are also encouraged, where appropriate, to attend auditions for Scholarships, Youth Companies, and Royal Ballet School Associate schemes.

    It is the aim of the School to encourage children, building their confidence and developing their natural abilities and love of movement and music.

    Our website is updated weekly, and advertises all RAD and in house Workshops and Courses, and all school news.
