  1. I haven't been on here for quite some time and hope that everyone is enjoying the wonderful world of Ballet!! I read with interest the thread " not vocational " and felt it time to present to you something I have designed purely to help UK Ballet dancers. During my years teaching and coaching, and especially after the work I have been doing this past year, I have noticed there is a gap in standard with our students here and the international ones I see. I believe a large part of the difference is a deep sense of self confidence that burns through every step thats taken to create an entirely different effect as a dancer. And like anything in life - If you believe you can perform that movement, well you are far more likely to pull it off! Obviously other factors exist but this has become a clear denominator now - upper body, artistry, dynamics and confidence! Technique can only work to its best with all these areas combined. And so I present to you The Performance Platform. An opportunity to be seen and taught by well connected industry professionals whilst focusing on performance and artistic skills. To be awarded mentorship, scholarships, bursaries and many more opportunities to inspire and ensure talent keeps training in these post covid times. Its about providing access and opportunity. The long term network created via this platfotm will also prove crucial as the dancers move through the years - alot of 'open doors' and opportunities arise through who you know and timing as much as what you can do.😉 Overall the aim is to inject a renewed sense of community in to the Ballet world where we all come together to offer the best chances for UK students and above all else to hope to instil a sense of self in to each and every dancer so they fulfill their potential. I see so much talent locked up inside unsure dancers. UK students ARE as good as international ones they just don't have the same self belief! This self belief colours everything they do and will lead to greater progress. Take a look - Gary Avis MBE and Aniya Young MBE are amidst the mentors and patrons. The uk ballet scene is coming together to help uk students.😍 www.theperformanceplatform.org.uk

Details below:- Confidence in Dance Performance, with Anna Reynolds (NLP) On the 23rd and 24th October 2016 Woodside Dance Retreat is proud to host this unique 2 day course. Tackling the ‘mind set’ and adding the building blocks to help towards producing the future Principal Dancers and West End Stars Anna's workshops explore the mental rigour that is needed to be successful in the world of Ballet/Dance, with a specific focus on building confidence within yourself and being present in the performance, allowing who you are to shine through. The emphasis will be on shifting mindsets for more happiness and greater success. Participants will:- Connect deeply with their intention to dance. Clarity on our 'why' serves as a strong motivator.
