We are delighted to have been offered the opportunity for a group of 10 members to attend a day of lessons at the Summer Intensive course run by the Masters of Ballet Academy at their studios in East Acton, London on Friday 29 July 2022.

The teaching staff for the summer course will also include former professional dancer Sara Knight (RBS & Vaganova trained and later RBS Teaching Course) and Denis Matvienko. Denis is a former principal of Kyiv, Mariinsky, and Mikhailovsky Theatres. He is formerly artistic director of Kyiv and Novosibirsk too, and most recently a professor at the Vaganova Academy.
