Ballet Boy

Boys dance too! We have some very talented boys at our studio and some of our most successful graduates have been male too. Ballet is a basis for all styles of dance and it gives you strong technique and discipline. Nice to see boys in dance is becoming more mainstream πŸ˜πŸ‘

Beautiful wands made by our magical dancers at the last summer workshop today πŸŒŸπŸ§šβ€β™€οΈπŸ§™πŸΌ

We have been working on stretching, balancing, partner work and elevation, using our mini trampolines. We mimed a story and created the character of a witch who had lost her wand. After lunch we did a magical ballet, with their own creative input, after we had made our props. We even did some tap and finished with a little fun freestyle routine. A jam packed but fun day.

Thank you to everyone who has joined our summer workshops, I hope you have enjoyed it? I know I have 😁 Thank you for assisting me and being a lovely demonstrator for the girls today.

I will be announcing a Spooky Half Term workshop in a few weeks so look out for that πŸŽƒπŸ‘»

I love this!! Many of our students play football & do ballet and they excel in both. Dance is a sport and makes you so strong, flexible and agile. Not every student is going to be a professional ballerina but you can get so much out of a ballet class both physically and mentally.

We are excited to welcome back, former student, to teach a masterclass for our advanced students tonight.

Amy danced with us until she was 16, then she continued her training at the Northern Ballet School, Manchester for 3 years. From there she has travelled the world dancing. She has worked at the prestigious Lido, Paris and most recently been performing on Royal Carribbean Cruises.

We are thrilled she has agreed to come back and share her experiences and knowledge with us! Don't forget your heels ladiesπŸ’ƒ

Congratulations to all our upper school students on an amazing show! Don't think there were many dry eyes in the house after our emotional finale πŸ˜₯ some lovely comments from the audience's and we are so proud of you all. Many said this is the best show yet but I know we can top it next year, as these students learn and grow. I'm really going to miss this production as I have loved every routine. Thank you all for making my visions a reality and working so hard these last 3 days πŸ₯°

Also thank you to the students who took over my Instagram, I know you didn't think I'd let you 🀣 you really showed how much fun we have backstage!! If you missed it I've added it to highlights 😁
