Primary Steps after-school workshops

Year 3 pupils in Blackpool and Dagenham can now apply to take part in free Primary Steps after-school workshops, starting in September 2021.

The workshops offer a creative introduction to ballet taught by The Royal Ballet School’s Primary Steps teachers.
In both Blackpool and Dagenham there will be 28 places available, with the aim of achieving a class that is split equally between girls and boys.

Following on from these sessions, some children may be invited to join our after-school Primary Steps classes, providing weekly classes until the end of Year 6.
