August 13th - 17th 2018 at Pineapple Dance Studios. PLACES ARE NOW FULL FOR ALL COURSES - HOWEVER PLEASE DO APPLY FOR THE WAITING LIST!

Ages 8 to 18 grouped by ability and age   £350 Senior and Mid level. £300 Juniors finishing one hour earlier each day

This summer school has been created to enable vocational and pre vocational students an opportunity to experience a fantastic week of Ballet, Repertoire, Pointe work for the girls and Virtuosity for the boys.

There will also be Pilates and an optional Yoga stretch class to finish!

Then, to add to the entirely necessary elements for success today: Contemporary and a Ballet Based Musical Theatre class which they love!

My aim is to look at the whole dancer – this includes their mindset, artistic approach and their technique. Only when all 3 elements are in perfect harmony can their true potential be unlocked.

During their week with Ballet Boost students thoroughly enjoy themselves and come out of their shell, displaying a wonderful sense of growth in both knowledge and confidence in only five days!!

They will be exposed to incredible Guest Teachers from many backgrounds who will impart their unique style and knowledge in an environment that is nurturing and inspiring.

The course is held each year at Pineapple studios in Covent Garden so plenty for parents and guardians to enjoy!

Freed Pointe shoes will deliver a lunch time ‘chat’ on pointe shoe and foot care – and I am always on hand to provide advice, support and that essential element - feedback.

Start time is 11am to allow for cheaper travel and children are chaperoned at all times. There is a small café on site and a Marks and Spencer’s around the corner. If travelling down for the week there are good hotel deals available when booked in advance.

I don’t tend to offer a demonstration or final performance as I would like the focus to be on the training as opposed to arranging steps for the final demo. However I do allow each parent/guardian to observe two classes of their own choosing. So when you receive the final timetable you can state which classes you wish to observe.

Please do email or call me with any further queries and booking can be made below.
