About Us

The Marna Bolt Ballet School was established in 1978 in Pretoria. Since then classical ballet was taught on a continuous basis.

The aim of the school is to develop a love and appreciation for classical ballet. To achieve this, ballet is introduced to pre-school children and encouraged to continue dancing up to vocational level.

Learners are encouraged and prepared to enhance their dancing skills through partaking in examinations, eisteddfods and shows.

The Marna Bolt Ballet School follows the Royal Academy of Dance Syllabus.
