Congratulations to one of our Junior students, who reached the finals of the ISTD Imperial Classical Ballet Junior Awards 2015. The competition was held in Radlett, Hertfordshire, on stage in The Radlett Centre theatre on Sunday 25th October, in front of a panel of adjudicators.
There were 90 competitors in the class from all across the UK, with only 27 reaching the finals.
Our students were very excited for World Ballet Day (1st October), and they expressed to us their wish to be involved in the celebration of this day.
Some of our Junior students gave a small presentation on a ballet, and a few students had done some beautiful drawings for us. We finished off the evening by everyone in groups creating their own short version of either Swan Lake or Coppélia (using ballet steps and traditional ballet mime).
The evening was very educational, and a lot of fun was had by all!
