Congratulations to our students who performed beautifully on Sunday 27th October at the annual ISTD Imperial Classical Ballet Junior Awards.
Qualifying for this competition earlier this year, our students danced on the huge stage at The Venue in Milton Keynes. They performed three set exercises and a set dance in front of a panel of senior ISTD examiners. Students were then chosen for the finals, and performed again.
The classes had over 70 competitors from 44 schools from across the UK and Europe.
Congratulations to our students who danced and gained a place in the finals:
