THE GABRIELLE ROWLEY SCHOOL OF DANCING
RAD Dance Instruction
Join us at The Gabrielle Rowley School of Dancing for Ballet or Tap Classes for Children & Adults in North London, We look forward to hearing from you!
The Gabrielle Rowley School of Dancing has been in existence for over 75 years in various locations in Muswell Hill, and in its present location for over 50 years.
Its founder, Miss Gabrielle Rowley, was a pupil of Phyliss Bedells who in turn was a pupil of the great Tamara Karsavina.
It is now run by Tamara Murray who took over in 1995 when Gabrielle Rowley retired, and she herself was a pupil of Miss Gabrielle Rowley and remained a friend of hers until she sadly passed away in 2019 aged a wonderful 106. Since graduating from her school, Tamara trained at the prestigious Royal Academy of Dance where on graduation she received the Karsavina prize.
Since then, Tamara has taught ballet (both RAD and Cecchetti), tap, modern and jazz in various locations and schools in and around London on behalf of Chelsea ballet schools. She was also a member of the Drama Dance and Speech Department at the City Lit adult education institute in Covent Garden, where she taught advanced conditioning and musical theatre amongst other things for 25 years and where she was in charge of the dance provision for the department for several years too.
Tamara now runs and teaches at The Gabrielle Rowley School of Dancing along with Miss Kerry West who also teaches for her, as well as freelancing with other schools.

Children's & Adult
Classes are held for children from the age of three and upwards following the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) method. Classes for younger children are quite freely based introducing the basic principals of Ballet, and as they progress they become more structured. From the age of six and upwards children have the opportunity to enter the Royal Academy of Dance examinations, and all grades may be studied and entered for right up to the Advanced examination.. We’re happy to answer any questions you have about this class or any others - simply contact us or stop by.
