Zanelle Wessels Studio of Dancing

Welcome to Zanelle Wessels Studio of Dancing

“Let them praise His Name with dancing”

ABOUT

Zanelle Wessels Studio of Dancing was established in 1990.

 

Over the past 25 years the studio has delivered qualified ballet teachers, professional dancers and award winners in different ballet categories.

 

The studio is one of the most established and successful ballet schools in South Africa and is based in Pretoria.

 

Zanelle Wessels and Elesia Ceronio are both ballet examiners for the Cecchetti Society of South Africa.

 

The goal of the studio is to give students the opportunity to experience the real art of classical ballet.  We strive to teach students the love for dance through our years of experience, professional teaching and through sharing our knowledge.  It is of utmost importance that a student leave the studio with a healthy and good self-image, a positive attitude towards life which they have gained during the period of their ballet training at the studio.
