Our mission is to inspire and nurture a love of dance by delivering encouraging and supportive dance tuition, in a professional and friendly environment.
Our ballet tuition will not only teach you to dance, but will also build your confidence, self esteem, instil self-discipline, determination, focus and resilience: all valuable core skills so useful for life.
For future ballet dancers our tuition affords a great platform, building an excellent foundation for later training.
SB Ballet Academy was established in spring 2018 by Sarnai Byambadorj to offer professional-quality ballet dancing experiences for children, young people and adults. Sarnai’s mission is to pass on her passion for ballet, inspiring her students by sharing her experience. Dance education not only teaches dancing, but empowers students and teaches many life skills.
Sarnai was born in Mongolia, and she trained full-time for 7 years with the Perm Ballet School in Russia, where she learned the Vaganova method of dance. She became a professional ballet dancer and worked for 6 years as a soloist at the National Academic Theatre of Opera & Ballet of Mongolia.
Sarnai then moved England to dance at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, where she performed as ballet soloist in the popular ECLIPSE Circus Musical at the Globe Theatre until its end in 2007. In addition Sarnai was part of the in-house company performing ballet in a wide variety of productions there for 10 years.
After the birth of her second child Sarnai retired as a performer, deciding instead to follow her dream of becoming a teacher, and in 2017 enrolled for the Royal Academy of Dance Professional Dancers Teaching Diploma course through which she gained Registered Teacher status.
