Welcome to Bluebell Studios, Liverpool

Welcome to Bluebell Studios, a family run business established since 1985 which puts children’s education, development, and excellence in tuition and care, at the heart of everything it does.

Bluebell Studios was set up by Carol Talbot and was called the Ernestine Graham School of Ballet, Dance & Drama. In 1990 Carol moved the business to its current location on Heathfield Road, Wavertree, where Bluebell Nursery was then born. The business is now established in a beautiful old church building.

Bluebell Studios is proud to be a hard working family-run business, it has diversified and grown over the years and now incorporates a thriving nursery, a Dance & Drama Academy and a private gym, as well as offering offices and creative space to rent. The newest addition to the Bluebell family is Perfect Parties, offering a unique party solution for children and adults alike.

Bluebell Dance & Drama

Bluebell Dance & Drama Academy has been established since 1990 and offers a wide range of classes including; Ballet, Modern, Tap, Street Dance, Disco and Freestyle. The dance school is also home to the award winning Dymension Dance Company. Dymension is a perfomance based contemporary dance group with membership through audition only. There are currently 3 Dymension groups; Minis (age 6+), Juniors (11+) and Seniors (14+).

The dance school is proud of its educational and syllabus-led heritage. Carol Talbot and the dance school teachers believe that any type of dance should be based on a thorough understanding of the classics such as Ballet. The dance school pupils are encouraged to improve and to take relevant dance exams throughout their time at Bluebell.

Bluebell Dance & Drama Academy is affiliated to the Royal Academy of Dance and the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing and follows internationally recognised syllabi from RAD, ISTD, LAMDA and ADA so that pupils can work towards examinations if they wish.

The school welcomes pupils as young as 2 up to teenage years and offer a range of classes and times throughout the week and at weekends. The school regularly holds performances for parents and the wider Liverpool community, which are rewarding for parents and children alike.

Bluebell Nursery

Established since 1990 and rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, Bluebell Nursery in Liverpool has been delivering exceptional childcare in a creative environment where children are encouraged to learn through play.

Our aim is to have children who are vibrant, lively, focused, dedicated and confident.
Bluebell Nursery prides itself on having one of the lowest staff turnovers in the North West. Each member of the team has many years experience. The nursery has a unique, creative and educational flair. The Bluebell team is made up of Nursery Practitioners, Early Years Professionals, Teachers, and Researchers in education.

The quality of teaching is excellent; each child is prepared for going to school which involves giving them broad base knowledge of reading and writing skills, number ability, colour and concept recognition, music appreciation, creative skills, computer skills and even Spanish. All of this is not only learnt in the classroom, but reinforced in everyday interaction with the staff.

But don’t just take our word for it, here’s what some of our parents say:

We searched city wide for a decent Nursery and we were just blown away by Bluebell…we have been so exceptionally happy with the nursery the staff are all so wonderfully attentive.

Marcko and Sam, Parents of Yanni

We are proud of the fact that she will begin her school days being able to read, write and understand the alphabet, thanks to the superb learning facilities you have offered.

Angela – Mum of Daisy & Harry

One of the reasons I wanted Kitty to start at Bluebell was the creative feeling I got here, the staff are all so friendly it really seems like a big family.

Perfect Party Invite

Big Fun Parties (for under 4s)

Our Big Fun parties are designed with younger children in mind. As with most of our parties we can tailor make something to suit. For this age group we would recommend a creative corner where the party can create a masterpiece, climbing apparatus for children to explore or even soft play for the younger guests to get to grips with.

The room will be decorated with helium balloons and party banners. Party games will be played and will be relevant to the age of the party child such as musical bumps, pass the parcel, the balloon game etc. Party food is included and served at the party table, we have specific party menus available for younger children if necessary.

Party hosts will ensure the smooth running of the party, however if party guests are very young we encourage parents to stay.

Themed parties (4 – 11)

Children love themed parties and we can accommodate a vast array of themes to suit all tastes. The party will last for two hours and typically follow a standard format:

  • Guests are received and greeted then the party boy or girl is crowned
  • Party gifts are collected and stored for you to take home whilst our party hosts begin the games
  • In between the games party goers are offered a specific treat under the party tent, maybe face painting, pampering our princesses with hair glitter and nail varnish – it does depend on the theme of party and mix of boys and girls.
  • A fun themed dance routine is then choreographed
  • Party food is served at the table with healthy options
  • One last chance to practice that dance routine then a celebratory photograph of the group is taken and posted out to all parents
  • Finally the routine is danced again and everyone is sent home with a gift bag and balloon, (parents are asked to fill the bag with party favours)

Some examples of the themes we offer include High School Musical, Under the Sea, Shrek party – Ogres and Princesses, Cheerleading parties

Teenage and adult parties

These parties are also designed to suit particular needs and will involve the party learning a choreographed routine whether it be to Hip Hop, Salsa, Cheerleading or anything you wish within reason! We can guarantee a unique celebration with a few special surprises.

We have previously held hen party cheerleading party where all hens learnt a choreographed cheerleading routine, followed by a glass of bubbles!

Everyone enjoyed the cheerleading lesson and all the staff at the dance studio where very friendly and helpful. The hen had a great hen party, so many thanks for all your help
