Esk Academy Of Dancing

The Esk Academy Of Dancing was founded by the Principal Beryl Couper who has trained and danced professionally in Edinburgh and London. Miss Couper was Co Director of Scottish - American Ballet Company for several years with Alexander Bennett, a former soloist with the Royal Ballet and Artistic Director of the American Ballet Company. Miss Couper has also directed International Dance Workshops over the years with renowned Artistic Directors worldwide and has taught and examined extensively as far afield as Australia and New Zealand. For the more serious student, our classes give training to Advanced Level for Professional Performance and Teaching Qualifications. Our classes also augment dance training courses at college. Intensive training is given for those wishing to make a career in dance. We have an excellent success rate for talented pupils. The Dance Centre was officially opened in March 1987 by the late John Field CBE, former Artistic Director of the Royal Ballet.
