Some of my students did e-mail for more information but have not heard back which I know is unusual so it may be worth checking that queries are getting through.

 

I've now sent them the necessary link.

Good Afternoon!

 

We have two more very exciting announcements today!

 

We are delighted that David Brewer has agreed to join us again this summer, to teach Ballet!

David trained at Royal Ballet Lower School, White Lodge, and Tring Park School for the performing arts.

David joined Ballet Theatre UK as a graduate from Tring Park and became an accomplished and versatile Principal Dancer. Roles include Prince Siegfried (Swan Lake), Aladdin (Aladdin) and The Nutcracker (The Nutcracker). 
Whilst with the company he was also able to pursue a passion for teaching and choreography. This included summer schools, workshops for local dance schools, and choreographing for 'The School of Ballet Theatre UK'.

 

We are thrilled that Kathryn Swainston is joining us again to teach Ballet and Repertoire!

Kate did her teacher training at the RAD, passing the Professional Dancer’s Teaching Diploma with Distinction before taking an Intensive Character Dance Teachers Course at the Royal Ballet School.

Kate had a career spanning nearly twenty years as a professional dancer. She performed a wide variety of works, all within the classical genre, with The Royal Opera Covent Garden,Opera North, and Glyndebourne Festival Opera. She was a soloist for many years with the Johann Strauss Company. Her love of character dance led her to join Paul Taras Company,with whom she toured extensively.

Kate now teaches at the Royal Academy of Dance School, London Studio Centre, and DanceEast, a Centre for Advanced Training (CAT).
Recently, she became head of the RAD programme for young gifted students at Stageworks. Kate is also an experienced RAD examiner.
