History and Development

Dorothy Ind’s powerful commitment to perfection at Chelsea Ballet Schools has been supported by an alumnus that greatly valued this training and our classes now include many second generation pupils enjoying their introduction to dance.

Chelsea Ballet Schools is responsible for several thousand pupils in London and the Southern Home Counties. As the school steadily expanded and flourished Dorothy Ind recruited excellent, highly trained teachers and although no longer teaching herself, is a very active Principal frequently visiting the venues and overseeing the organisation of the classes.

Since its inception Chelsea Ballet Schools has given performances in support of the NSPCC, Kids Company and more recently English National Ballet. There is an ongoing association with the company, giving pupils the opportunity to dance with English National Ballet Principals and dancers in Nutcracker Christmas Galas.
