Capitol School of Dance was established over 30 years ago, and brings dance training to students in Cornwall via our classes in Threemilestone,Truro and St Austell. Kay Cecile Jones, the founder and Principal is a registered teacher with the Cecchetti Society, and is supported by a team of highly qualified teachers with international reputations.
At Capitol School of Dance we train in the Cecchetti Method of Classical Ballet -
The aim of our school is to train and educate our students to the highest possible standard in their chosen dance genre, be it Ballet, Modern Dance, Tap or Spanish. Classes are open to all children from 4 years, and our students have many opportunities to perform from school shows, local and national dance festivals and competitions, as well as Duchy Ballet, Cornwall’s Youth Dance Ballet Company.
Many of our senior students have gone on to professional vocational schools around the country including The Royal Ballet, White Lodge,and now enjoy successful careers in the world of dance and theatre.
