Summer School 2020
10th - 12th August
Ages 7 - 16 years
A 3-day Summer School taught by graduate of The Royal Ballet School's Diploma of Dance Teaching and current Mid Associate Teacher.
Classes include technique-focused classical ballet alongside body conditioning and stretching, classical repertoire and a guest West End workshop, where students will learn a dance from Cats! taught by Daisy Hulburt. Also guest teaching repertoire will be Fiona Cameron Martin, who danced professionally alongside me at The Romanian National Ballet and who currently teaches at Southold Dance Theatre in the USA.
Students will benefit from three to four hours of dancing each day allowing them to explore new approaches to their classical technique and preparing them for the new academic year. Classes will be held over Zoom in small groups allowing individual feedback and the opportunity for students to work collaboratively.
On the final day, all students will come together to share the learnt repertoire in an online performance. I aim for the Summer School to be an exciting and fun three days, where students keep dancing together, helping them return to the studio with confidence.

Limited places remaining for ages 7-9, waiting list only places for age 10-13
This Christmas I will be holding a 1-day Nutcracker workshop for students age 7-9 and 10-13 at Academy Mews Studios, London.
The workshop will include a classical ballet class, Nutcracker repertoire workshop, as well as pointe work and body conditioning for the older students. I am delighted to welcome Royal Ballet Artist Charlotte Tonkinson to our workshop to teach the students the Nutcracker Repertoire!
Places are limited to enable lots of individual feedback and ensure every dancer gets the most out of their class.
