What to Expect
Our brand new rising stars scholars class is set to start in September 2022. This exciting new class is designed for students who wish to take their dancing to the next level with a view to auditioning for vocational associateships such as The Royal Ballet School Junior Associate Programme, Ballet Boost or full time vocational dance school.
This class will focus on progressing the student’s natural abilities at a faster than normal pace, concentrating on the technique, skills and discipline required to gain successful entry to a vocational associateship or full time dance school. The class will combine non-syllabus Classical Ballet technique class and Contemporary Dance with Progressing Ballet Technique and Pilates. Students will gain strength, control, stamina, musicality, performance, presentation, confidence, increased posture and flexibility whilst expanding their technical knowledge of classical ballet and repertoire.
Instructors are qualified Dance Teachers, carefully selected for their expertise and experience within the industry and carry full enhanced DBS checks, including a once a month workshop with a guest teacher from the profession.
