Welcome to the Ruth Elizabeth Orr School of Dance

REO dance offers dance classes in Highgate, London. I welcome everyone from beginners to those with previous experience of dance. Classes are available in ballet, modern/ jazz and tap from the age of two and a half years through to adults.  All students will have the opportunity to perform in the annual summer show and work towards ISTD exams.



Pre-school and Mum’s ballet

REO Dance is offering the opportunity for both child and parent (or nanny) to come along and enjoy your own separate ballet classes. For the first 30 minutes there will be a pre-school ballet class (3years+) that uses stories to capture the child’s imagination and introduce them to the foundations of ballet music and movement.

Adult Ballet

Presently I aim to offer an adult ballet class to suit a range of abilities. If you are an absolute beginner, someone who has previously danced or an experienced dancer please come and enjoy a ballet class.

Street Jazz

Street jazz is the most commercial style of modern dance and it is the type of dance you would expect to see in a pop music video. This fun and energetic class will combine locking and popping with funky new dance moves to the latest pop tunes. This is a great way to have fun and keep fit!

I believe ballet is the foundation of all dance. There are huge benefits that children and adults can gain from participation in ballet classes, but above all ballet enhances an individual’s physical and mental ability.



In tap you will learn rhythm and how to develop the different sounds needed for great tap dancing. Like other forms of dance tap will improve your posture, spacial awareness and basic coordination. It will also teach you how to isolate parts of the body and define movements. Come along and find your toe-tapping dancing feet.
