Chantry School is based at DancePointe - an independent dance studio in Grantham, Lincolnshire, in the East Midlands.
Three of the dance studios have been officially named by notable dance celebrities: Deborah Bull - former Royal Ballet Principal, Creative Director, Writer, Presenter Robert Parker - former Birmingham Royal Ballet Principal, Artistic Director of Elmhurst Dominic North - current Principal dancer with Matthew Bourne's New Adventure
Robert, Deborah and Dominic all visited Grantham to lend their support to Chantry School and DancePointe by naming the studios, and donating signed photographs. All our dance students take great inspiration from dancing in "The Deborah Bull Studio", "The Robert Parker Studio" and "The Dominic North Studio".
The facilities at the school include:
* state-of-the-art studios, with Harlequin or natural wood dance flooring, wall and free-standing barres, full wall mirrors and natural light * kitchen and café * changing rooms * dance & acrobatic equipment including yoga blocks, gymnastic mats, foam yoga matting, medicine ball, swiss balls, balance trainers, foam rollers
The studio is located in the town centre, close to all amenities such as supermarkets, cafes and launderettes.
Grantham is a beautiful traditional English Market Town. The rural setting, away from the busyness of the city, make this an ideal place for the dance student to thrive and develop in, and to feel free to explore their creative passions.
Grantham is also one of the most affordable towns in the UK. Accommodation is realistically priced, and the cost of living is relatively low compared to the rest of the UK.
