Welcome to the J.C.L. School of Dance





 The J.C.L. School of Dance was founded in 1987 & has branches in Bishop's Stortford and Haverhill .        Pupils are enrolled from 3 years upwards .




Pupils are entered for I.S.T.D. graded examinations  and I.D.T.A.  Rosettes and Medals .

We have 100% success rate in examinations .

If a pupil does not wish to be entered for examinations they move up to the next class when the teacher feels they are ready to do so . Such pupils are issued with a certificate of merit by the school .                                                                                                                                                




A large number of pupils learn to dance for fun . They learn not only to dance , but also gain poise , fitness , self - discipline and confidence .




Some pupils however have gone on to continue their studies at major vocational dance schools with a view to a professional career in dance .  

Former pupils have gone on to study at Arts Educational , London Studio Centre and Laban . Pupils have also been accepted and attended  the Royal Ballet Junior Associate and Summer  School courses . Other former pupils have  gone on to gain degrees in dance at University .                                                                                                                                




Every two years we stage our school shows at Haverhill Arts Theater or the Rhodes Centre , Bishop's Stortford . All profits from these shows are donated to charities and they are very popular with the pupils . All pupils from  both branches of the school are included .
