Patron Christopher Powney -

Didy Veldman and Emma Northmore (Ballet Boost) are very excited to announce the launch of DancEnhance. Fabulous Masterclasses of Contemporary Dance, Ballet and Choreography by outstanding teachers and choreographers which are held at The Royal Ballet School studios on a monthly basis.

After the success of our Return to the Studio course this summer we wanted to offer a further ‘stretch’ in terms of the thinking dancer and their Contemporary experiences. The masterclasses are for students aged 12+ who are interested in deepening their knowledge of contemporary dance. We are offering a collection of classes, focussing on widening their contemporary knowledge, awakening movement qualities, creativity, and giving students an introduction to working with choreographers.

In this ever-evolving world where a classical dancer can no longer get by on ballet alone, we wanted to provide a vocational level of support which will assist in many ways; auditions, work prospects and general growth as a dancer of today. All Fully complementing any regular training.

The DancEnhance courses are fun, of a high standard, for the serious dancer who is interested in expanding their potential.

We can offer places to 12 students per group due to Covid-19 and can run a maximum of two groups each date so early booking is advised.

Full refund if we cancel due to Covid-19 related issues!
