Further information from Andrew Ward, Director of DANCE FORWARD:
Dear London Ballet Circle Members
The course is aimed at students attending vocational ballet schools at Intermediate to Advanced Level. Since 2005, Dance Forward has been running ballet courses to inspire the next generation of dance students with star ballerinas passing on their expertise, passion, dedication and importantly artistry of classical ballet as a performing art form.
The Dance Forward Ballet Course has three distinct sessions.
Morning Ballet Class 9.30-11.00
Pointe work Class 11.15-12.15
Coaching Classical Solo 12.30-1.30
Olga Mazour will be playing the piano for all 3 sessions.
This Autumn we have students flying in from USA, Spain and around the UK to be taught by Yasmine Naghdi, Fumi Kaneko and Dame Darcey Bussell and other star ballerinas.
Dance Forward is delighted to offer London Ballet Circle Members the opportunity of a behind-the-scenes experience seeing young dancers perfect their skills at the hands of great artists.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Dance Forward!
Andrew Ward, Director Dance Forward
