Hello dancers!


We are really excited to announce that our Summer Session will be running again this year in the Clapham/Battersea/Wandsworth area, at Broomwood Hall School. 


Junior Summer Session

Sunday 7th - Tuesday 9th August


Intermediate Summer Session

Wednesday 10th - Saturday 13th August


Senior Summer Session

Wednesday 10th - Saturday 13th August


Aimed at dancers aged 9 and over, our Summer Session includes classes and workshops in classical ballet, contemporary and jazz dance.


Working with our experienced faculty, students will gain a greater insight into these dance forms, including a taste of what to expect when auditioning and performing professionally.


Whilst being extremely hard work, and sometimes challenging, our workshops have a friendly and supportive atmosphere. We have over 20 years' experience of training young dancers at both a pre-vocational and vocational level, and understand that an all round approach to a dance student's well being is essential. 


All our teachers are returning this year along with some more fantastic names:


Sam Archer (Contemporary). Sam was chosen by Matthew Bourne to play the title role of Edward Scissorhands, and has worked extensively with his New Adventures company as well as choreographing his own work.


Helen Rymer (Jazz Dance). Helen was associate choreographer on Elf the Musical this year in the West End and has numerous other West End and theatre credits to her name, including White Christmas.


Andrew Wilson (Ballet). Andrew is Head of Ballet Department at Bird College and was a Principal dancer with Birmingham Royal Ballet.


Lucie Pankhurst (Contemporary). Lucie has an extraordinary amount of TV, film, live performance and theatre credits as a choreographer including Horrible Histories, Bad Education (Channel 4) and The National Theatre. 


Steph Elstob (Ballet). Steph trained at Central School of Ballet and has appeared with Matthew Bourne's New Adventures, Michael Clark Company and has performed at Buckingham Palace with ROH.


Nicky Griffiths (Jazz Dance). Nicky trained at Bird College and is currently playing the role of Lorraine in Jersey Boys at the Piccadilly Theatre. 


Please look at our website for further details and get in touch if you have any questions.

We're also going to be at 'Move It' this year.


On Sunday 20th March we're leading a ballet rep class on 'Entrance of the Swans' from Swan Lake. The class is sold out now, but we'll be there to talk to anyone interested in coming to our Summer School and to answer any questions about it. 


11.45 - 12.30 Studio 2 :)

My  then  Year 9  (at vocational school) daughter was lucky enough to do this course last year and loved every minute of it. They covered a lot in just a few days and the faculty was fab! Lots of encouragement and advice.


Thoroughly recommend it to everyone.
