Welcome to Mid Wales Dance Academy

We are a large, privately run dance school with over 300 pupils, ranging from 3 to adult.  We offer a range of classes, including ballet, tap, modern, drama, hip hop and street.  We also offer examinations with both the Royal Academy of Dance, and the International Dance Teachers Association.

The school is fortunate to have Theatr Brycheiniog in Brecon as its main base, where we have use of a large studio with sprung floor, mirrors and barres.  Classes are also held in Priory School, Brecon.

The school Principal, Lesley Walker, founded Ribbons Ballet School in 1995, and the school has expanded to become Mid Wales Dance Academy, offering a wide range of classes.  All our teachers are fully qualified and DBS checked.

Mission Statement

As qualified teachers committed to continuing self-development, we aim to pass on our passion for the performing arts by providing technical but fun training to all students, nurturing the individual learner in a healthy, disciplined and safe learning environment.



Owing to the closure of Theatr Brycheiniog, and in light of advice from HM Government, we are currently unable to run our normal classes.

Instead, we are now running online ballet classes via Zoom, and a timetable is available under “useful documents”.  If you would like to give this a go, please email through the website for further information.
