We were thrilled with the success of our very first Youth Ballet in March. The dancers worked extremely hard throughout the rehearsal process and showed professionalism and teamwork when we moved into the Theatre Chipping Norton for the 2 performances. The audiences were extremely impressed with what the cast had achieved in just 7 weeks. This success was also down to the support and commitment from the parents in getting the young dancers to rehearsals each week and all their help with costumes and props - so thank you to all involved. We are very excited about this year’s Youth Ballet; The Nutcracker on December 8th.
We are thrilled to say the Marco Da Silva in Year 3 has been accepted onto the associate program at Birmingham Royal Ballet. Marco will be attending weekly classes from September.
Daniel Chambers in Year 11 will be starting his second year on the associate program at Central School of Ballet and is also on the Thomas Page Dance mentoring scheme for young dancers in Oxfordshire.
Having spent the last 6 years as an associate of the Royal Ballet School in Birmingham, Darcey Thompson in Year 10 has been accepted as an associate of Central School of Ballet.
Rose Heppell in Year 11 will be starting as an associate of Ballet Theatre UK.
Good luck to all of you with your new ventures.
We had a fantastic time dancing at Temple Guiting Fete and Rissington Village Fete this year. The pupils prepared some dances in their lessons and performed very well. Thank you again to the parents for their support in getting them to the fetes this summer.
