About The O'Rourke School of Ballet

A world class ballet school in your local town

The O’Rourke School of Ballet was established in 2009. Since that time we have grown to over one hundred and sixty students. At our school we strive to promote a love of dance while training at the highest level possible. As one of the few schools outside Dublin to offer training in vocational RAD grades, we aim to offer students the opportunity to train at an international level as well as cater to students who simply want to have fun and stay fit. Every year students enter Royal Academy of Dance exams. RAD exams are internationally recognised as the most prestigious a ballet student can take- so you can be confident your child is being trained at the highest level. We also have annual recitals in The Helix because ballet is above all a performance art. The excitement both young and old feel when stepping on stage makes for lifelong memories. Ballet instills poise, confidence, musicality and discipline in young children and adults alike- whether you or your child are with us for one term or many years the life skills instilled in the ballet classroom will stay with the student.
