"Thank you so much Judy and HBA for your inspirational, focused, nurturing, challenging and dynamic teaching. Helena adores you and your classes."
Hampton Ballet Academy (HBA) offers ballet classes in Sussex, based on the Russian Vaganova system of training - a profoundly transformative method of teaching where students learn so much more than purely ballet.
Russian ballet training inspires discipline, respect and resilience. HBA students develop the all important life skills of self belief, self confidence, tolerance and determination, as well as the feelings of beauty, grace and poise - all within a warm, nurturing and inclusive environment.
Judy Breen is the Founder and Principal of Hampton Ballet Academy, and brings to her teaching the wealth of her 39 years of experience in the professional ballet world.
Judy was the former Director for Ballet and Ballet Mistress of Universal Ballet Company, raising students who went on to become soloists and principals in major international ballet companies around the world.
Classes are offered to students of all ages; for very young children there is a weekly lesson gaining strength in coordination, flexibility and musicality.
Children from 9 years onwards, take 2-4 classes a week to develop to their highest potential and these students can train to become professional dancers.
We also offer classes to adults with a basic foundation of ballet, who soon discover the physical and emotional benefits of a ballet class as a regular form of exercise.
