Each day will commence with contextual studies and include a ballet technique class and creative practice, highlighting the contextual material explored throughout the course.

This course will also appeal to A Level, BTEC and Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) students who are studying or may wish to focus their project on ballet.

The programme will run from 10.00-16.30 each day. All classes will be taught by ballet and creative dance specialists.
