The Wingfield School of Ballet and Dance has been teaching dance in Bristol and South Gloucestershire for over 30 years. It was set up in 1979 and continues to be run by founder and principal, Pamela Wingfield (RAD RTS).
We offer classes in ballet following the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) syllabus for children aged 3 years old and upwards. Classes in tap, modern and jazz follow the Imperial Society for Teachers of Dance (ISTD) syllabus for children from the age of 5 years old.
At the Wingfield School, children are taught safely and professionally by experienced and caring teachers. Pupils are trained to take graded examinations with the RAD and ISTD and gain formal achievements and certificates. Pupils are also given the opportunity to perform regularly in festivals and competitions. We also put on a spectacular ‘Showcase’ every 2 years in which children perform on stage in a full-scale production for large audiences. Our shows are enjoyed by all and create magical memories for pupils that last a lifetime.
The Wingfield School believes in nurturing creativity and talent and we inspire children to dance to the best of their ability. Pupils enjoy the study of dance in a disciplined and structured manner and this provides them with regular exercise, so important to a healthy lifestyle. Most importantly we promote the enjoyment of dance and encourage children to express themselves. Our lessons are fun and fulfilling and always leave pupils wanting more.
Over the years pupils have gone onto lead successful careers in dance. Many pupils have joined professional dance companies, others have furthered their studies of dance at major stage schools and dance colleges. Some pupils have even qualified as dance teachers themselves.
We have a partner school in the Westbury Park area of Bristol: ‘Westbury Park Dance Centre’. Full information can be found on their website:
