about us

Our philosophy at Primaballet is; 'every student, every class, every time'

Formerly operating as Aisling Doherty School of Ballet, in May 2016 we rebranded to become Primaballet. We are excited about the changes to our ballet school. The love of ballet and teaching children is at the heart of everything we offer and the lasting benefits to posture, co-ordination and confidence that come from learning ballet is the gift we hope all our students take from our school. We are always delighted to welcome new students to come and try a free trial class with us throughout the year and hope you don't hesitate to contact us to arrange yours! 

All our ballet teachers are professionals who have trained and qualified through the Royal Academy of Dance, London. They are all Garda vetted and have completed Dept of Education child protection courses. Our students consistently have a 100% success rate in our annual RAD ballet examinations.
