About Decorus Academy

Decorus Academy is the leading independent dance school based in Bedfordshire.  We hold classes for babies through to adults based on the RAD & ISTD Syllabi.

Decorus offers children and adults the ability to perform and express themselves whilst channelling their energy into a disciplined art form. Ballet is an excellent form of exercise for all ages and in the right environment can build confidence levels.

Whether you are looking to get in shape and keep fit or would like to give your child the opportunity to have fun whilst unlocking their potential,  through our excellent teaching we enable all pupils to develop their performance and technical skills to the highest of standards, ready for them to become the next Darcy Bussell or Carlos Acosta!

Laura Pendlebury, the founder of Decorus Academy, trained at the Royal Ballet School and Birmingham Royal Ballet.  After winning a scholarship Laura furthered her training at The London Studio Centre. Laura has performed with various companies including the Royal Ballet and Pennsylvania Ballet, and in productions such as The Nutcracker, Alice in Wonderland, Focus on Dance and Godspell.

Laura is very passionate about teaching and believes everyone can become the best dancer they can and want to be!
