One of the earliest vocational dance schools in the United Kingdom, Elmhurst was established in the 1920s in Camberley, Surrey. The school moved to purpose-built premises in Edgbaston, Birmingham in 2004.[2]:p.1 The facilities occupy an area of 5 acres (20,000 m2) and include a 250-seat studio theatre, a theatre workshop and seven dance studios. There is also a medical centre and a physiotherapy/exercise centre.[3]:p.2 In addition to day students, there is on-site boarding accommodation for up to 121 resident students and off-site boarding for 30 sixth-formers.[1]:p.4

Robert Parker, a former Birmingham Royal Ballet principal dancer, has been Artistic Director since 2012.[4][5]


Mary Goodhew is a former Artistic Director.
