Shawbrook Summer School

For over 30 years Shawbrook's week-long residential dance courses have been honing students skills in Ballet, Jazz, Aerial, Contemporary, Choreography and Theatre Craft. Our tutors are professionals in the world of dance both at home and abroad. Shawbrook Summer School is unique as it offers on-site accommodation on a beautiful idyllic 18th century farmhouse with surrounding woodlands of oak, ash and beech trees.
