Ison Aslanoff School of Dance & Theatre Performance

The name of the school, Ison Aslanoff, is the unique amalgamation of two family businesses with a combined heritage of over 100 years in showbusiness, thus creating one strong competitive force. Jacqui Ison runs the Bishops Stortford branch in Hertfordshire and Michele Aslanoff runs the North London branches in Winchmore Hill and Palmers Green.

Together, the Ison Aslanoff School of Dance & Theatre Performance offers a creative and inspiring choice of non-syllabus classes as well as examinations in a variety of genres. Additional workshops take place which allow pupils the opportunity to work with established guest teachers, try new styles of dance and performance, and increase their confidence.  These also incorporate musical theatre, singing and acting which is key to those pupils who wish to venture in to the world of musical theatre.

We offer:

  • Classical Ballet Classes incorporating Modern Ballet and Pointe Work
  • Tap Dance Classes incorporating Rhythm Tap
  • Modern Theatre Dance Classes incorporating Lyrical and Contemporary Dance
  • Jazz Dance incorporating Body Conditioning
  • Classical Greek Dance Classes
  • Festival and Competition Dance Classes incorporating National and Character Dance

About Ison Aslanoff Dance School

Old Mill Studios, our purpose-built dance studios in Bishop’s Stortford, are beautifully decorated and are fully equipped, offering a professional yet friendly environment to learn in as well as being registered as an ISTD approved Dance Centre. Our venues in Palmers Green and Winchmore Hill offer spacious training studios in a warm and welcoming environment.

Our young performers will be inspired by knowledgeable, qualified and experienced professionals together with the energy and commitment of their peers from multiple disciplines. This collaborative approach and our strong sense of community ensures that our young performers’ talents, as an individual, are continuously nurtured, challenged and developed to a professional standard within a supportive environment. Pupils will work with many different teachers and our staff are chosen to complement and contrast with each other. Their approaches may vary but they share a common purpose. Together they help each pupil to define, develop and use the processes which are most useful to them.

We have three terms a year with pupils regularly entered for examinations as well as taking part in regional, national and international festivals and championships, amateur and professional engagements, shows and community performances.

The school continues to grow in reputation and many of our successful graduates credit their skills and talent to their time at the Ison Aslanoff School of Dance & Theatre Performance. We continue to provide outstanding teachers and a well-disciplined environment, creating a professional and open atmosphere where talent can, and does, flourish.
