You can read a profile of Donna here.

When she moved to London, with decades of professional experience and a clear vision of opening out the availability of dance to all, Donna and her team pioneered dance classes for the over 50’s in west London. Ballet4life has successfully delivered top quality ballet and dance classes & courses for adult learners since 2004. It has continued to develop and expand its adult dance programme and own methodology, and now offers daytime and evening classes Monday – Saturday, at all levels, taught by leading industry professionals and held in beautiful large well-equipped studios. It is also the only organisation to offer Character Dance, Contemporary Dance, and Pointe for adult learners in the area.

Ballet4life is passionate about its work, it has  brought in international guest artists, supported local events and is well known in the local community.
