The Allenova school of Dancing was established in 1985 by Miss Tanya Allen and her mother. The dance school has been running classes all across the Royal Borough of Berkshire for more than 30 years. During this time the school has seen many thousands of children taught by its teachers, many of which have gone on to pursue careers in dance, the theatre or in teaching dance themselves.


Also add in 100% success rate for our recent RAD ballet examinations held in May 2015
