Our Vision

SB Ballet & Dance Studios was established in 2007, by Sarah Hill (Principal). Our main studio is based in Normanby, Middlesbrough, but we also have classes in Marton, Middlesbrough.

Sarah Hill’s passion for Classical dance has developed the school into how it is today. The belief that classical training is the foundation of all dance styles is at the heart of the school, with pupils developing strength, grace, and alignment from ballet tuition, which can then be applied into other dance styles.

Our vision at SB Ballet & Dance is to create not only well trained dancers, but to shape and develop young people. We aim to provide an environment that is caring, nurturing, and inspires pupils to learn and succeed. We understand that every student is different, and therefore needs to be nurtured in different ways. Our aim in our teaching is to assist every pupil to achieve their own personal best.  

We teach classes in Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Pilates, Acrobatics, Tap, Street and Musical Theatre. We believe that the fun and learning can start as early as 6 months old, so have developed Parent and Toddler programs for our little dancers to learn with mummy.

Whether a pupil comes to one weekly lesson or several, every member is equally important to us. SB Ballet & Dance is part of the UKA, RAD, Acrobatic Arts and Progressing Ballet Technique Curriculum. Pupils are prepared for annual exams in their disciplines. They also get the opportunity to perform on stage in our shows and performance events, and we have a competing team for selected students.
