Biography

Denzil Bailey started to dance aged 17 in a weekly Jazz class in a church hall in Cricklewood. Encouraged by his teacher to take ballet, he joined the London School of Classical Dance. After 3 years he was chosen to join the internationally prestigious English National Ballet where he danced for 10 years, touring the world.

Following some time freelancing and raising his son Jacob, Denzil was approached by Cassa Pancho, a dancer writing her dissertation on the lack of black classical dancers. Together they founded 12 years ago the renowned Ballet Black

This led to numerous requests to teach and Denzil unintentionally became a ballet teacher, which he calls his “dream job”. In addition to his 2 three weekly classes at Danceworks, Denzil teaches at Central Ballet School, The Place, London Studio Centre, Middlesex University, London Theatre School and Pineapple. He also teaches for dance companies such as Rambert, Random, Neo Ballet, Tavaziva and Skanes Danse in Sweden – and of course, Ballet Black.
