Relevé School of Ballet was founded in 2021 by Grace Buskell (RAD RTS, ARAD, BSc Hons).

Grace has danced professionally with Atlantic City Ballet (NJ, USA), The London Ballet Company and Ballet Theatre UK. She attended Susan Robinson School of Ballet and The London Russian Ballet School, later training full-time at The School of Ballet Theatre UK. She was also coached privately for a year by Roberta Marquez, principal ballerina of The Royal Ballet.

Grace has completed all her RAD examinations up to Advanced 2 and has taught ballet for many years at various schools in Surrey and London.

She gained her Certificate in Ballet Teaching Studies in 2018 with the Royal Academy of Dance, where she now holds Registered Teacher Status.

In 2021 Grace graduated with a First-class BSc (Hons) Psychology degree from Durham University.

Recently, Grace was invited to sit on the RAD’s Global Membership and Marketing sub-committee which works alongside the RAD’s Executive Board and The Board of Trustees.

The school offers training and expert advice to those looking to embark on a career in dance and are always on hand to guide and support any student who wants to take their training to the next level.

Having had both a ballet career and attended Durham University, Grace is also uniquely placed to offer first-hand knowledge and specific guidance on balancing academic achievement and high-level ballet training.

Relevé School of Ballet is dedicated to providing a consistently exceptional standard of teaching to boys and girls age 4+, in a friendly and supportive environment.

The school takes its name from the French word Relevé (pronounced 'RE-LE-VEY'), which in ballet describes the movement of a dancer rising up on their toes.

We offer structured classes from Pre-Primary all the way to Grade 8 and beyond, taught by passionate and caring teachers.

Pupils have the opportunity to follow take Royal Academy of Dance examinations as well as take part in class demonstrations and performances.

Regardless of whether a student wants to dance recreationally or professionally, the school believes that every student deserves to experience the joy of ballet under the instruction of a passionate and professional teacher.
