About Us


Welcome to AFB Dance Academy, we are a small and friendly ballet school based in Great Bowden, close to the town of Market Harborough. Formerly known as The Oakley School of Dancing we specialise in teaching the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) syllabus. The RAD is a world renowned organisation for high-quality dance education. Both teachers and students benefit from the high standards set by the RAD and you can be confident with the standard of teaching and learning in our classes.

RAD Registered Teacher

Based close to Market Harborough, we currently hold classes inΒ Great Bowden and Foxton. As a small school, we have time to support your child individually during classes and aim to provide a nurturing and supportive environment. Alongside ballet, we offer tap classes. With a more relaxed feel these classes aid children with musicality and rhythm which supports progress in other dance styles.

Children can begin studying ballet with our school from age 2 1/2 starting in our Nursery classes. When they begin school aged 4-5 children are invited to move onto the Graded syllabus and can begin taking exams from the age of 6. We offer students the opportunity to be entered into a wide range of ballet exams and assessments with the RAD. Providing support for students through the exam and assessment process we aim to motivate and inspire students to achieve their best, rewarding students of all ages and abilities. Exams are not a compulsory element to learning and, if they choose, students are able to progress through the Grades without taking exams meaning they can remain in classes with their peers.
