To finish off the Autumn term, we invited Martin Dutton to give two workshops to our students.
Mr Dutton trained at the Royal Ballet School and Central School of Ballet. He then went on to work in Northern Ballet Theatre and Peter Schaufuss Balletten, performing many soloist and principal roles. He is now a full time teacher at The Hammond School in Chester.
Alongside the class, students were taught a short piece of repertoire from the Nutcracker. The first class learnt the 'Children's dance' from Act 1, and the second class learnt the famous 'Sugar Plum Fairy' variation.
