    Just for the boys...😉

    There were 10 boys of mixed ages ( 7-20 ) on my recent summer school . This is a great way to meet other boys and their Mums .

    Tutugirl's summer school

    Thank you ponklemum , for this lovely review . It has been a fabulous fortnight . Wonderful to work with non vocational students , along with those from Elmhurst, Tring, Hammond and Moorlands . The show lasted over an hour and a half , so every child was well showcased . This afforded a rare opportunity to vocational parents , to see their child perform on stage for a good length of time . The senior group tackled all the swan repertoire beautifully . Their corps de ballet work was amazing . Soloists cut no corners and the audience gave a standing ovation after the pas de deux which included 32 fouettés en pointe. The fortnight included daily classes in ballet , plus ,pas de deux or rep and optional jazz and tap . Two masterclasses from Northern Ballet guest teachers proved popular with all the students . Friday night was pizza and games night , much fun had by all . I was deeply touched that everyone seems to want to return next year . dates and ballet to be confirmed - but considering Don Quixote or Sleeping Beauty . Enjoy the rest of your summer everyone x

    Dance school recommendations Leeds/Bradford

    Well I’m biased but can recommend the Sara Packham theatre school Currently : 5 Royal ballet JAs in Leeds 2 students at Tring Park on full scholarship 2 at Moorlands international on full scholarship 2 at Hammond on MDS 2 completed TV work on ‘ Victoria ‘ Winner of RAD awards day Runner up for Markova award at Tring Park Winner of Most promising dancer at Cecchetti competition 17 th year of sunbeams at Bradford Alhambra pantomime . Majority of students who wish to pursue full time training have gained places at the Royal ballet school , Elmhurst , Tring Park , Hammond and Moorlands , with scholarships . Highly acclaimed annual summer school . If that doesn’t tempt you - I can recommend the Maillot Rose school in Harewood Tutugirl

    YBSS application 2018

    Junedancer I think my summer school affords better value than the ones quoted ! Less than £40 a day . Class sizes capped at 16 but usually 12 or less. Thank you Sarahw and those who have written testimonies . Two weeks this year by popular request and a production of Swan Lake in a theatre . Plus a lot of fun !!!
