Unity Dancing School is Cecchetti ballet school based in Walthamstow, London, UK.

Its main objective is to bring classical ballet to the heart of Walthamstow.

It is led by Renee Cohen,CDE, DDE, LISTD, who has more than 40 years of teaching experience and is now a life member of the ISTD.

The school has small classes,which enables us to ensure that every student has the chance to study and perform the art at whatever standard it is felt they are best suited.

Students join us for their own enjoyment or/and to work towards ballet exams, qualifications recognised by the QCA.






We are an all inclusive, community dancing school. We put emphasis on self development and confidence building. Teaching takes place at two venues: Unity Hall and Whittingham Academy.
We take students from the Reception classes till adulthood and also allow parents to watch classes at anytime.
