Open since 1979, the International Ballet School was founded by Yvonne Hunt, a graduate of the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing of London.

It evaluates students based on the Cecchetti Method (made famous by one of the greatest ballet dancers of all time, Enrico Cecchetti) and will give you the opportunity to perform in theatres two times per season.

With highly qualified teachers and an offer that includes not only classic ballet but also Spanish ballet, jazz and funky, it’s a great place to take your first steps in the world of dancing.

In case you’re already a skilled ballet dancer, don’t miss the opportunity to enroll in their advanced-level Tring Ballet Summer School.

Address: Calle de García de Paredes, 76.
