What we say about ourselves
A small school with big heart. Milford and Brook School has been running ballet classes in Milford and villages for over 20 years. It was founded by Karen Ann Couper and Becky Bradbury took over in 2009. Alongside our Royal Academy of Dance Syllabus lessons we offer performance opportunities to every child in our school. Our full length ballet productions showcase our senior students allowing them to perform iconic ballet roles alongside our tiny dancers. We are an inclusive first class for beginners of all ages from 2 to 102 with children, adults and Silver Swans classes. We truly hope that you can attend class with us and leave inspired encouraged with the joy of dance. Don't just take our word for it - read our attendee testimonials!
