The Julie Morton School of Dancing


History of the School

Julie Morton trained at the Royal Academy of Dancing and the Royal Ballet School and, after some years of performing in the theatre, opened her first JULIE MORTON SCHOOL OF DANCING in Chesham in 1975.


The Tring school opened in 1977 and a further branch of the school ran in Gerrards Cross for 15 years, with many excellent displays and RAD exam results to her name.


Julie Morton sadly died in 2000, a victim of cancer. The school continued to flourish under Julie’s daughters Belinda and Jennie. Both are former professional dancers who trained at the Arts Educational School, now the Tring Park School for the Performing Arts. Mrs Belinda Williams is now Principal of the Julie Morton School of Dancing and Jennie Morton is an Osteopath and a recognised authority in the area of Performing Arts Medicine, now resident in the USA.  They both continue to maintain the school in the successful tradition established by Julie Morton and the whole school celebrated its fortieth anniversary in 2017 with a highly successful show at the Centenary Theatre in Berkhamsted.
