Our History

Bury St Edmunds Ballet School is the combination of an Adult Ballet Class, based at Pakenham Village Hall, which Eleanor started teaching in Spring 2016 and an established dance school in Bury St Edmunds which she took over in September 2017.  


When we celebrated our 5th birthday in 2022, we changed our name from Pop Up Dance to the Bury St Edmunds Ballet School to reflect the school's evolution into an established provider of high-quality dance tuition within Bury St. Edmunds.


The result is a wonderful dance community for the West Suffolk area!



Our Ethos

We encourage our students to develop an appreciation of dance in an environment where the contribution of everyone is respected and appreciated.


Our classes provide a safe space for our students to be the best version of themselves, helping them develop the personal and social skills which will benefit them throughout their lives.


Children are encouraged to understand their personal boundaries and we support them in advocating for themselves. 


The school has robust safeguarding policies and all teachers are DBS checked
