Fonteyn Academy Press

Dame Margot Fonteyn dedicated a great deal of her attention to education in the last two decades of her life. During that time she did exhaustive research on a wide variety of topics. The results of this included "The Magic of Dance" both as a BBC series and a published book, her tenure as Chancellor of Durham University in England, and the creation of The Margot Fonteyn Academy of Ballet.

Her work with Ken Ludden has resulted in the creation of far more than MFAB. Taught at MFAB is the Academy Method, a training regimen and educational program designed for the dancers of the 21st Century and beyond. This educational program is available to study through a series of publications. These are available for purchase at booksellers worldwide, and on the Internet.

The Margot Fonteyn Academy of Ballet educational program, dress code, admissions policies, course content and much more is available through our Catalog and Student Handbook.

To purchase the Student Handbook (only available in paperback):
