About Lois Booth School Of Dancing

Bolton's Favourite Place To Dance

The Lois Booth School of Dancing was founded in 1960 by Lois Booth and has been running in Bolton for over 50 years. Lois Booth retired in 2011 and the school is now being run by Lisa Stewart and Michele Haslam.


Lisa Stewart the dance teacher is fully qualified in RAD Ballet and ISTD Modern and Tap. Lisa gained her ISTD Qualifications through Preston College and gained her RAD Qualification directly through the RAD.


Our aim is to run a fun, friendly and hardworking dance school who’s aim is to get each student to work to the best of her/his individual ability whilst enjoying classes and the social side of meeting new friends.


We have a 100% success rate in our exams. In all of our exam sessions of RAD Ballet and ISTD Modern and Tap all students received either Merits or Distinctions. We are very proud of all our students. As long as each student works to the best of their ability then that’s all we ask.

Our goal as a dance school is to make every student welcome and feel at home.
We will work hard with the students and strive to get the best out of them. We will
prepare all students to highest standard in order to undertake exams and fill the
students with confidence and determination.


It is not our policy to rush students through exams but to aim to get the best exam
results that the students can achieve. We want the students to love what they do
and work hard to achieve whatever goals they may have. We have a one hundred
percent pass rate with most students regularly achieving merits and distinctions.

We believe that every student should be given the opportunity to dance no matter
what their level,  as long as every individual student is loving what they are doing
and building on their technique, confidence, performance and social skills and
working to the best of their ability. This is all we ask of our students. Michele and I
are always on hand to discuss any queries anyone may have.

We promise to give your child the best and most up to date training there is. All
students will be taught by a fully qualified teacher so that your child is being taught
safely and correctly. We promise to give one hundred percent to all of our students
and look after them to the best of our ability as we are one big family. It’s nice to see
the students develop friendships with other students who enjoy similar activities.
