Today we were privileged to gain our accreditation to teach Progressing Ballet Technique, with the amazing Callie Roberts. Such an incredible programme and we can’t wait to share what we learnt with our students.
What an honour to meet them backstage on their last tour date in UK. A special thank you to the artistic director William Trevitt for giving us an insight into their amazing world. A truly spectacular performance!
Today, Anya was back at the Hampton Ballet Academy, teaching these wonderful students; such great dancers to work with. A special thank you for this invitation to the director of this amazing academy, Judy Breen, Anya’s mentor and an inspiration.
A fantastic start to the new term! Today our students had a wonderful opportunity to meet the Moscow City Ballet dancers and watch the company’s rehearsal. We are also privileged to be able to watch them perform two iconic ballets this week, ‘Romeo and Juliet ‘ and ‘The Nutcracker’. Such an amazing source of inspiration!
We had the honour of being invited to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the ‘People Dancing’ Foundation for Community Dance yesterday.
Hosted at the legendary Cecil Sharp House in London, this memorable evening celebrated the unique successes of community and participatory dance and looked forward to an exciting future.
We are very proud to be involved in an organisation that believes that dance can change lives and transform communities. We share their vision of a world where dance is a part of everyone’s lives and our mission is to make dance important to all individuals, communities and society by promoting excellent dance practice.
Thank you to everyone who came to Skylark School of Dance’s Christmas party, celebrating the festive period and our first term of classes. It’s hard to believe that we only started a couple of months ago!
As director, I want to thank all our wonderful students, “the skylarks”, their supportive parents and our fantastic team; without them there would be no school. I feel truly blessed to be working with such amazing people.
I hope that everyone gets some rest and has a lovely time over the Christmas school break; I look forward to seeing you all in the New Year. We’ve got lots of exciting stuff planned for next term!
Today we celebrated our first milestone; our school has been open for one month… and what a month it’s been!
We marked the occasion by staging our first performance in collaboration with the Churchill Theatre. Thank you to all our wonderful students, parents, theatre staff and the school’s team for their hard work, support and enthusiasm; you were all amazing! It was great to see our little skylarks flying high, congratulations!
