About this Event

A week-long course involving two daily classes in ballet and creative dance. Themed classes let you use your imagination to create an original dance with your teachers. A fun week ends with a lively presentation.

Dates:

Week 1: Monday 26 – Friday 30 July

Week 2: Monday 2 – Friday 6 August

Closing date: Monday 14 June 2021

Who can attend?

Students aged 4–7 years. No prior dance experience necessary.

Students are not required to be studying the RAD syllabus or have RAD membership. Places are awarded on a first come, first served basis. There is no audition, selection or elimination process.

Content:

Each day, Monday to Thursday, the children participate in a 45 minute ballet class, followed by a 45 minute creative dance class. There is a 15-minute refreshment break in between classes, and students can bring a small snack along with a drink. Over the course of the week the children will create two dances.  The children will shape the story they tell through their dance, choosing characters and developing steps and sequences of movement that are based on a theme.

In ballet, the children will be introduced to ballet steps and classical mime appropriate to their age.

Each class will be taught by an experienced RAD teacher or professional artist. With live music throughout the week.

On Friday, each class will be one hour long to all the participants to perform their dances.  Parents will be invited to watch a filmed sharing*

*subject to change according to prevailing government guidance and in accordance with photography and filming permissions sought at the time of registering.

Repertoire Session for 6 - 7 years:

We are excited to announce that as part of the Children's Summer Classes 2021, students in the 6 - 7 years group will also be taking part in a free 30 minute repertoire session based on Sleeping Beauty at the end of each day. These sessions will be led by professional dancers who are currently studying on our PDTD programme. There will be a 30 minute break between the two morning classes and the repertoire session for students to have some lunch.
