Ballet4Life (®) was founded by former professional dancer, teacher, choreographer, director, and dance artist Donna Schoenherr. Donna was trained at the esteemed Enid Botsford School in Rochester NY before training under full scholarship in NYC with dance luminaries. Here in London, with her visionary approach to dance and decades of professional experience, she and her team helped to pioneer the way for vocational adult dance education; especially for dance for the over 50’s. Ballet4life has successfully delivered top quality ballet and dance classes & courses for adult learners since 2004. Ballet4life has continued to develop and expand its adult dance programme and own methodology, and now offers daytime and evening classes Monday- Saturday, all levels, taught by leading industry professionals held in beautiful large well-equipped studios.
