Annual Ballet Productions

Performing in a professionally produced production is one of the highlights of the Ballet programme and highly anticipated by our dancers. Having an opportunity to learn the major ballets, such as 'The Nutcracker', 'Tales of Beatrix Potter', and "La Boutique Fantasque'  is a vital and valuable part of any dancer's training - giving a real knowledge of it's history and a deep appreciation for the art.  Performance experiences provide knowledge in stage craft, opportunities for self-growth, and are wonderful for confidence building. 

Opportunities and invitations to perform also occur, such as: 'Dance Revue' (annual secondary school season), 'Style at StAC' (biannual fashion extravaganza), 'Dancing Like the Stars' (Isaac Theatre Royal, Christchurch Primary School's programme), Prizegiving (whole school event at Horncastle Arena, ballet highlight piece).

"Holly cannot wait to get back to school next week, so she can start Ballet again…that’s all she talks about! Thanks once again for all your hard work and the end of year show."
