This is such a fantastic achievement. He only started ballet aged nine, and within two years went from a complete beginner and took every exam (gaining high Distinctions) from Primary to Grade 5 in this time. He was accepted as a Junior Associate of Elmhurst Ballet School within a few months of starting classes with us and was offered a place in the full-time ballet school by the time he was 11. He has also performed twice with Birmingham Royal Ballet in their professional production of The Nutcracker (once while he was a student with us, and once while at Elmhurst).
To win this end of this year award in his first year of full time training is a huge accolade.
