Dorchester Ballet and Dance was founded in 1958 by Ann Hannay and Elizabeth Goodchild MBE, who wanted to “make dance available to all, regardless of age, wealth or ability”. We are a family friendly not for profit organisation, committed to providing dance classes for children & adults at an affordable price and maintain standards of excellence in teaching for dancers of all abilities.
