The Legat School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance embraces both the theoretical and artistic nature of dance and believes that they should be taught in conjunction with each other.
We encourage intellectual curiosity and develop future creative leaders, strengthening their professional spirit whilst nurturing, developing and guiding our students into future careers.
A priority is to efficiently support and align the demands of dance training alongside the high academic standards of Bede’s, and our mission is to make Legat an international centre of excellence both in creative learning and championing future generations of dancers, choreographers, producers, teachers and creative leaders.More About Legat School
