Marguarita Hoare School of Dancing

Est. 1939

MHSD is a family run school providing dance tuition in St Albans.  We provide children with high-quality training in a variety of dance styles that develop health, strength and confidence, together with a love of dance and music that will stay with them forever. 

We teach classes in Ballet (RAD & ISTD), Modern, Contemporary, Jazz, Tap and National, covering examinations from Primary to final Advanced 2 levels as well as Body Conditioning, Classical Greek Dance and adult Tap. 



July update - Thank you to our wonderful students (and parents!) who were so patient and dedicated during Lockdown - it was wonderful to see you all back in the studio. 

We are starting adult tap classes in the autumn!  See the class timetable for details. 

Have a wonderful summer holiday from us all at MHSD. 



At MHSD we aim to provide students of all levels with more than just dance classes, but a unique experience in which the student can grow both mentally and physically as a dancer. Our highly trained and certified instructors have a wealth of experience in teaching and performing various styles and disciplines.

Many of our pupils have gone on to careers in the West End, TV and professional ballet companies, such as The Royal Ballet.

Pupils may also take part in The All England Regional and National Dance Festivals and the ISTD Grandison Clark Awards.

Here at MHSD, we have a passion for the art of dance and for helping children discover their inner dancer.  If you think your child would benefit from dance training, please contact us.
