Didy Veldman and Emma Northmore are very excited to announce the launch of a series of contemporary masterclasses alongside Ballet which will have an artistic focus to help students with their performance skills. To further deepen their performance skills we have the additional options of solos class or acting for Ballet workshops.

Fabulous Masterclasses of Contemporary Dance, Ballet and Choreography by outstanding teachers and choreographers. Classes are held at The Royal Ballet School studios on a monthly basis.

We want to offer a further stretch in terms of the artist; the thinking dancer, contemporary experiences and all the important presentation skills that will set them up for success at auditions, performances, exams and generally in all areas of dance.

We are offering a collection of classes, focussing on widening students’ contemporary experiences, awakening movement qualities, creativity, and providing an introduction to working with choreographers by learning solos and other work.

Why Choose DancEnhance?

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

We are delighted that Christopher Powney, Director of the Royal Ballet School, will be our Patron. He is kindly teaching and watching on Nov 14th and possibly Dec 19th 2020 too.
