The girls and boys of Wimbledon will soon be pirouetting with the West London Dance Academy, when it launches a new branch of the school in the town.

The school, which currently teaches 300 children in Chiswick,
Ealing, Fulham and Notting Hill will be starting Saturday afternoon classes for children teaching Ballet, Boys' Ballet and Tap dance.

The classes will take place from April 30 in the Mansel Road Centre, Trinity United Reform Church, Mansel Road, Wimbledon, SW19 4AA.

The school follows the IDTA syllabus and places particular emphasis on maximising a child's confidence, co-ordination, self esteem and self expression.

Whilst the main objective is of enjoyment and fun, children who demonstrate a desire and talent to pursue a professional dance career are identified and supported accordingly. Current pupils have successfully auditioned with the London Children's Ballet, and vocational dance schools.

Whilst the classes cater for both girls and boys, the boys' ballet class (from age 5 years) was originally launched in the Chiswick branch in September 2006 and is now an important class within the school branches.

The school found that many musical and sporty boys wanted to attend ballet classes, but
were daunted at the prospect of being the only boy in a room full of pink ballerinas.
The class is not designed to segregate boys and girls, but actually to encourage boys to take up ballet in the first place. They can then experience the positive aspects of ballet for themselves and realise the many benefits including how complimentary ballet is to sport.
