Elmhurst Ballet School unveils new name

Elmhurst Ballet School has unveiled its new name and logo. The move reflects Elmhurst’s focus on classical ballet and highlights its association with the prestigious Birmingham Royal Ballet.

Previously known as Elmhurst School of Dance, the name change will take immediate effect.

Principal Jessica Wheeler says: “The decision has been taken following a wide consultation in recent vision and planning sessions with staff, students and members of our governing body.

“Although our students can enjoy a range of dance styles, our true focus remains on classical ballet and this is reflected in our close working relationship with the city’s own ballet company”.

Located in the Birmingham suburb of Edgbaston, Elmhurst Ballet School is the oldest vocational dance school in the UK. By providing each student with a carefully crafted structured timetable, Elmhurst’s aim is to balance academia, dance and enrichment sessions.
