Ballet4Life (Ballet4life.com®) was founded by former professional dancer, teacher, choreographer, director, and dance artist Donna Schoenherr. Donna was trained at the esteemed Enid Botsford School in Rochester NY before training under full scholarship in NYC with dance luminaries.

Here in London, with her visionary approach to dance and decades of professional experience, she and her team helped to pioneer the way for vocational adult dance education; especially for dance for the over 50’s. Ballet4life has successfully delivered top quality ballet and dance classes & courses for adult learners in since 2004.
Ballet4life has continued to develop and expand its adult dance programme and own methodology, and now offers daytime and evening classes Monday- Saturday, all levels, taught by leading industry professionals held in beautiful large well-equipped studios. They are also the only organisation to offer Character Dance, Contemporary Dance, and Pointe for adult learners in the area.
They give generously to the community, train teachers, offer placement positions to university dance students, offer concessionary rates, plus the Ballet4life Team has taught at local schools and institutions.  Ballet4life is also proud to be the umbrella organisation for the registered charity number 1172264 Move Into Wellbeing®, founded and directed by Donna, which offers unique well -crafted dance and movement classes to people living with Parkinson's and with other mobility restrictions.
