What a year it has been. With so many new ventures and exciting developments, 2018 is certainly one we are going to look back at fondly for years to come.
It is wonderful to think that we now run our associate and vocational classes with a total of over 400 students in 6 venues around the UK! With an ever-growing team of highly-qualified teachers, staff and pianists, 2017 has certainly been a busy one. Ballet Boost was even nominated and reached the semi finals of the Venus Awards London 2018 – Small Business category!
Two New Venues: Hull & Hong Kong
We are excited to announce the launch of two new locations for our Ballet Boost Associate classes to join our current venues in London, Devon and Belfast. The Hull and Hong Kong branches will both launch in January 2019. We know these will be a great success, headed up by a team of highly-regarded teachers.
Launch of the Academy of Balletic Arts
2018 also saw the beginnings of Emma’s vision for a full-time vocational school being realised. We are now delighted that the Academy of Balletic Arts has been running for a full term, with tremendous success. The students have improved beyond even our expectations, and we now offer five days a week at the wonderful Pineapple Dance Studios and Sadler’s Wells.
The combined efforts of our team have created a wonderful vocational training system. The course provides intensive and professional training for students selected for their talent and potential for a classical ballet career. There are flexible options for how many classes per week the students can take, and each dancer is catered for individually.
