Welcome to the Morphew School of Dance Website
Morphew School of Dance was founded by Pauline Morphew over 50 years ago to provide high-quality tuition in the four key dance genres - Ballet, Tap, Modern and Jazz. The main school is based in Trowbridge, and there are four "outreach" branches in Bradford-on-Avon, Bratton, Holt and Chippenham.
The school places great emphasis on the performing aspect
of dance and this is highlighted by the biennial show, involving
all the pupils of the school. All 400+ students in the school
are given the opportunity to perform whether they are two
years old or adult. The show is normally performed over a
week at the Civic Hall in Trowbridge. Other opportunities
to perform arise from requests from other organisations and
our dancers are regularly involved in local fetes, shows
and pantomimes. At the end of every
term, parents are invited to the final class.
We hold external examination sessions usually at the end
of each term. We would expect on average one examination
per year per genre. Examinations are held at the main school
in Trowbridge and are optional.
The school follows the syllabus of the British
Ballet Organisation and caters for all standards from complete beginner
right up to the most advanced level, with a number of students
going on to vocational schools and colleges.
Dance has the ability to instill confidence, build discipline and above all, be great fun! Many schools charge very high fees, often even charging students to perform in a show! The Morphew School of Dance is founded on the principle that dance should be accessible and affordable, and the fee structure is designed to reflect this, offering a 10% discount if a child takes lessons in 2 or more genres. There is also a 10% discount if 2 or more children from the same family dance at the school.
