 Pamela Wingfield RAD RTS, ISTD & Pauline Reynolds

"There is something very special about this long established Dance School"

Evening Post


The School was originally started in 1935 by Miss Bettie Vowles, who ran the School until 1999 with her daughter Pauline Reynolds.  On Bettie's retirement Pauline teamed up with Pamela Wingfield, who had also established The Wingfield School of Ballet in 1979. Together they have rebuilt the School, with the aim of continuing the life work of Bettie Vowles.


Today the School has more than 300 students aged from 3 years to 21, and 4 fully qualified Dance Teachers.  It offers a range of lessons including RAD (Royal Academy of Dance) Ballet, ISTD (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing) Tap, Modern and Jazz, and it excels in Exams and Eisteddfods.

The School continues to impress with it's popular Shows, and also holds a number of smaller events through the terms.

In addition dozens of past pupils have progressed into the professional world of Dance, and have had careers with the English National Ballet, Scottish and Harlem and Birmingham Royal Ballet.

Others have become Dance Teachers themselves or work in the Entertainment industry.

The School has a real sense of Professionalism and Discipline, but more importantly a sense of fun runs through the classes.
