The founder of a dance school in Aylesbury says it will have to fold if it cannot find a new home by September.

Dance and Arts has been based at the Dance Studio at Aylesbury College for two years however from next term the venue will not be available for the dance school’s ballet classes.

More than 100 people, from toddlers through to adults, enjoy regular ballet classes at the school.

Dance and Arts founder, Phillipa Leemans, 33, from Wendover, originally ran the dance school from Duck Farm Court in Aylesbury before they outgrew the space.

Miss Leemans said: “I thought the dance studio would be a long=term thing but it has not worked out like that.” Miss Leemans said that some parents were upset at the thought that the dance school may not continue next year.

She said she had tried schools and other venues 
in the Vale but they were either fully booked or not suitable.

She said: “I am looking for a reasonably big space with a wood or sprung floor.

“If it had mirrors that would be very handy for us as well.”
