Artistic Director

Juy Breen, Founder of HBA

Judy Breen

"After nearly 40 years in the profession, I'm still deeply inspired by the medium of classical ballet. I've remained committed to bringing out the best in each of our students, giving them the opportunity through ballet to recognise, experience and affirm their inherently unique value as human beings."

Our History

After Judy concluded her work directing the official school for Universal Ballet Company (Seoul, Korea) she returned to the UK to start her own school and continue the legacy of her work overseas.


​On January 17th 2005, Hampton Ballet Academy had its gala opening!


Judy taught classes to children and adults of all ages and also privately coached a core group of talented pre-vocational students who all graduated into top ballet and performing arts schools.


Thanks to the Academy's passionate and dedicated students and the incredible support from all our wonderful ballet parents, HBA has now been serving the local communities of aspiring dancers for 15 years.
