Growing confidence, experience and expression
Our ever-popular week-long summer school is always a highlight of our year. It is an opportunity to go beyond exams and take in other performance skills such as singing and acting. We bring in top guest teachers to create a show in a week. The programme links to a theme each year and can include contemporary dance, street jazz, ballet repertoire, gymnastics, musical theatre and drama. We then create a show in a week and perform for friends and family - highlights of this year's show are in the video below.
To give our students as broad an experience as possible in dancing, singing and acting we hold workshops with the top professionals in the business. Past workshops have included, Richard Alston Dance, Rambert, English National Ballet, and West End Dancers from CATS, Grease and Fame to name a few.
To broaden our students understanding and inspire them we arrange trips to professional performances at the Hall for Cornwall and Plymouth Theatre Royal to see ballet, musicals and contemporary companies.
Preparation for professional auditions
Many of our students have successfully auditioned for full-time dance colleges and are now working as dancers and teachers around the world. We help students to prepare for auditions and advise each individual on their chosen career.
