While visiting New York this half term, one of our students participated in New York City Ballet's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' workshop (choreographed by George Balanchine). Based on the story by William Shakespeare, she learnt extracts from the ballet.
The class took place at the famous Lincoln Center in New York – home to the New York City Ballet.
The class was taught by Claire Kretzschmar (School of American Ballet, soloist in New York City Ballet) and Lars Nelson (School of American Ballet, Corps de Ballet in New York City Ballet). The class was accompanied on the piano by Elaine Chelton.
Alongside our student, was her brother, a past student of our school who is now studying ballet full time at Elmhurst Ballet School.
