About The School

Set-up by Karen Lowe, the ballet school caters for children aged 15 months to 7 years and provides a fun but structured introduction to the joys of dance.

Our classes are predominantly located in West London, with venues in Kensington, Chelsea, Knightsbridge, Fulham, Notting Hill and West Hampstead. 

Parents are encouraged to participate with their children in the mum’s and baby’s class, and subsequently to watch their progress as they move through the age-groups. There is a strong emphasis on theatrical performance from Karen’s team who are all classically trained ballerinas and teachers who actively perform and demonstrate with the children.

The classes are conducted to a mixture of classical and children’s music to help stimulate imagination, develop rhythm and encourage musicality. Exercises and storytelling help the pupils to learn the appropriate steps for their ages in an organised, creative atmosphere. The sessions further encourage balance and co-ordination whilst improving the child’s self-confidence.

The Kensington Ballet School’s priority is always that the children enjoy and look forward to their classes as an outlet to self-expression through movement and dance whilst providing a disciplined backdrop to participate in a group environment with other children.
