Wexford School of Ballet & Performing Arts

Established in 1965
A School of Excellence with Professional Standards

Wexford School of Ballet & Performing Arts has now been successfully running since 1965. Many of its past students have written their own success stories, setting up their own dance schools and performing and dancing professionally in London and abroad


The School now comprises of three centres. Our own private studios at Studio 12, Westpoint, Wexford are used for examinations and training. The Waterfront Swimming Pools’ two studios host our Enniscorthy classes and St. Mary’s Youth Centre studio is home to our students in New Ross.

Running three centres takes an amount of work and care so we are well staffed with 6 fully qualified teachers in ballet RAD (Royal Academy of Dancing) and I.S.T.D Modern and Contemporary (Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing).

We train Ballet, Modern, Hip-Hop, Commercial and Contemporary. The students also do examinations in RAD Ballet and ISTD Modern. The School has always prided itself with a high standard and that is very obvious in our examination results and performances. Three to four sessions of examinations are organised annually.

Students also have the opportunity to perform with theatre groups such as the Wexford Pantomime Society, Oyster Lane Theatre Group, Wexford Light Opera Society, and Wexford Festival Opera. Students have performed with the European Ballet Company, had Masterclasses with the British Ballet Company, Monica Loughman Ballet, Ballet Ireland and enjoyed many West End and Commerical workshops. The students had the wonderful opportunity of performing with Wexford Sinfonia in the National Opera House and then travelling to Tomar, Portugal to perform in the Zezere Festival which proved to be a magnificent success. We annually travel to ‘PERFORM’, Irelands largest dance festival to dance in the RDS and also to Paris to perform in Disneyland.

WSBPA produce the full ‘Nutcracker’ Ballet bi-annually in the National Opera House each December and this is a real Christmas treat for all the students. And also have productions in June and December annually in the Opera House.

So, after an impressive school year we really look forward to the holidays but we do also run annual Summer School for students who like to keep dancing. These are usually a week long and include a show on the final evening in the Opera House.


In July of this year we officially moved to our new purpose built premises – Studio 12, Westpoint and lots of new classes as well as Summer Dance Sessions have been added to an already busy timetable enabling the students to keep doing what the love, which is dancing.

What WSBPA means to me…

A Poem from two WSBPA past students

Ann Gayer & Rachel Bermingham

Your feet were born to dance

Your passion can’t be taught

Your talent and friendship has filled our hearts

With a feeling that can’t be bought


We’re both so proud of all of you

We’ve watched you grow with pride

Just know our hearts are broken that

We’re not dancing by your side

Your days are not yet numbered

But treasure each and every one

Through jetes and poses and plies

Make sure you never lose the fun


The applause will eventually subside

But the love stays forever and ever

Know that no matter how far we may be apart

Dance friends always Dance together

The final curtain falls for everyone

One day for us one day for you

Just know you’ll remember the people you love

Not just the dances you do


So head to the ceiling and big smiles

The show’s about to start

Hold onto that feeling forever

You never want it to leave your heart
