We are very proud to have had our students, who are regular Dancewear Central models, featured on Dancewear Central Instagram and Facebook with photos of them practising at home
There was also a video featured on Sander Blommaert's Instagram page (ex-Royal Ballet and teacher at Elmhurst Ballet School). He has taught our past student featured in this video (who is now training at Elmhurst Ballet School), and we just love that the whole family have been getting involved in his classes!
We are honoured to have been invited to host Silver Swans® classes today (live) and tomorrow on Facebook.
Royal Voluntary Service Virtual Village Hall - Thursday 30th April - 3pm

The sessions are suitable for absolute beginners.
She came to us as a beginner and has gone on to pass all her Grades (Primary-Grade 5) with Distinction and is now studying for her vocational Intermediate Foundation - all achieved in just four years. In this time, she has been successfully cast in Birmingham Royal Ballet's professional production of The Nutcracker at the Royal Albert Hall, Birmingham Royal Ballet's Swan Lake Dreams at Birmingham Hippodrome, and won multiple awards at the ISTD Junior and Senior Imperial Classical Ballet Awards. She has also been an Elmhurst Ballet School Junior Associate for three years and in Stagebox since September 2019 for elite musical theatre mentorship.
She will be greatly missed by everyone and we can't wait to see what the future has in store for her!
It was lovely surprise to see the image of one of our students selected to appear in the ISTD's social media post about the Senior Ballet Awards. Our student competed in the Grade 5 class at the ISTD Senior Ballet Awards and was awarded The Nancy Robinson Cup for Musicality.
We were delighted to hear that Bolton School Junior Girls Division had shared the story of one of our students performing in Swan Lake Dreams with The Bolton News:
We also have been offering live dance classes for both the children's department and Silver Swans®. It was wonderful for everyone to interact with each other once again, and to have a class with real-time corrections and feedback. This means that students don't have to compromise on their learning and development during this time.
We hope that all our students and their families keep well during this uncertain time, and we can't wait to see you all back at classes again.
