Professional Ballet Master Class – Saturday 27th June 2015
Michael Berkin, a highly trained professional dancer with years of performing experience visited our Academy on Saturday 27th June to conduct a 2 hour ballet master class for some of the Vocational students. Thirteen girls, studying at the Intermediate Foundation and Intermediate levels, enjoyed a class which was taught in the style of a professional ballet company’s daily class. The girls were challenged by both the pace and level of the class and it was a fantastic opportunity as it gave them a great insight into the rigours of professional ballet training.
I was extremely proud of all the participants – they worked hard and enthusiastically for the duration of the class, despite the heat, and coped very well with all that was thrown at them. It was a truly inspiring, exciting and worthwhile event and I hope you will enjoy looking at some of the photographs taken during the class.
