Summer School 2018

Book early to avoid disappointment.

Mathilde Anderson

We are delighted that another one of our senior students, Mathilde Anderson Mellor, has won a place on the prestigious Centre for Advanced Training (CAT) scheme at Trinity Laban in London. Mathilde has just achieved a Distinction for her Grade 6 RAD Ballet exam, and is excited about this new opportunity to further her dance training:

“Going to Trinity Laban has always been one of my dreams due to its amazing reputation for dance training. So having a chance to audition was too good to miss, but I never thought I would get in. I am really excited about a new style of learning, meeting new people and having the opportunity to dance in such a great environment.”

We are expanding our well established timetable of dance classes to offer magical 'Melody Bear' classes for pre-school children (from as young as 18 months), running alongside dance fitness classes for adults. This gives parents/carers a unique opportunity to take a class for themselves without having to worry about childcare!
