Our History

The Vera Robinson School of Dancing was established in 1952 by Vera Robinson.
The first class was held in the Kings Hall at Blighs Hotel followed by a short period at the Sevenoaks Services Club. The school moved to the Cornwall Halls in 1958, where classes remain to this day. With the number of pupils increasing Miss Linda Pilkington joined the school in 1964 whilst Miss Robinson’s daughter, Diana Thwaites began teaching in 1974. On Miss Robinson’s retirement in 1995, Diana took on the role of Principal to the school.

Since the school began over 2000 pupils have progressed through the school, including several generations of the same family. In December 2012, Diana decided it was time for her to retire and pass on the reins to a new generation.

Upon Diana’s retirement, Kiera Hegarty took over as Principal. In December 2012, the Vera Robinson School of Dancing was renamed to the VR School of Dance, keeping the long standing traditional values running from the roots of the school.
