We have over 80 years' experience


Jeanne Lamaison, founder of the first La Sylvaine School
              of Dance in Fontainebleau

Parents have been entrusting the care and development of their young ones to our family since the first La Sylvaine School was founded in Fontainebleau in 1937 by Jeanne Lamaison, our current principal’s mother.

We are a nurturing dance school


La Sylvaine upper grade dance classes in West London

We provide a warm and caring environment where children develop a love of dance for life. Pure joy and self-discovery through dance underlie all our teaching. Optional RAD examinations are introduced slowly and without pressure.

Our teachers are fully qualified and highly skilled

Miss Chloe Bergeret, teacher at La
                Sylvaine School of Dance

Our experienced and caring teachers are fully qualified members of the Royal Academy of Dance and will assist your child to develop into the best dancer that they can become. Many of our teachers are also successful performers. This breadth of experience allows them to introduce dance to young children in a broad imaginative way.

    This week marks 100 years since the birth of prima ballerina Margot Fonteyn. Considered a legend of British ballet, it felt only right that we share this incredible gallery with you.⠀

    Another fun fact, Fonteyn was also the President of the RAD for several decades!⠀

    Tutu's at the ready, performance rehearsals can get very dramatic once the costumes arrive!

    Fortunately our teacher, Clotilde, is always there to capture the action... 😄

    This week was the anniversary of the birth of our founder, Jeanne Lamaison.

    A few months before she passed away in 2014, also 2 months shy of her celebrating her 100th birthday, pupils from many generations were contacted to celebrate with her.

    This is a fun exercise led by the Director of La Sylvaine Fontainebleau; Marie Lamaison, surrounded by men and women who once danced at La Sylvaine.
