The Performance Platform

Performance Platform Masterclasses

A new addition to The Performance Platform, an exciting opportunity for talented young dancers.

It’s time to get your performance skills finely tuned with The Performance Platform masterclasses series!

Three Sundays a term we will be purely focusing on how you perform by learning a solo and mastering the art of musicality, dynamics, facial expression and much more, as well as technical application. It’s not as simple as just smiling! This series will enhance opportunities across the board for aspiring ballet dancers as it is a crucial skill even during classwork at auditions.

The ballet class will focus on presentation followed by a longer Solos Masterclass where we aim to build confidence and an ability to deal with nerves by ensuring each dancer performs alone (when ready) to their peers during these sessions. So it becomes common practice and less of a worry for them. This is a good half day training with the option to continue on for a full day including contemporary and choreographic skills. This too can be booked as a separate afternoon for those budding contemporary dancers.

 

Two ages -based groups:

  • 9 to 11/12 – grade 4 to 6 / Intermediate Foundation
  • 12 to 16 – minimum level: strong Intermediate Foundation
