The programme has been designed to provide students with both classical and contemporary training to assist them to enter their pre-professional/professional training having with a excellent level in both genres.

Classical and pointe – open technique and different methods e.g Vaganova

Repertoire – not just performing but exploring the history of repertoire

Character – open technique and history of

Contemporary – including open technique, improvisation and composition

Pilates – including stretch and strengthening

Yoga – including meditation

We believe this comprehensive programme will prepare young dancers for future success by providing them with the necessary skills, strengths and confidence as they prepare to enter pre-professional training.

The transition into pre-professional/professional training will be smoother having been through these programmes.

Our tutors for both the part time and full time programme will include

Classical  – Laura Saxon Jones, Alina Kulikova, Fiona Hulands.

Contemporary – Gina Andrews,  Kathryn Crawford.

Pilates and Yoga – Gina Andrews, Caroline Tan

They will be supported by our other teachers from EnPointe.

We will also have guest tutors during the year for specialised areas such as Character and Pas de Deux and will incorporate a few surprise guest tutors from over seas.
