Exciting News

This exam session has been made extra special with the inclusion of our incredible Silver Swans from across Wales. They are taking part in a pilot scheme for the Royal Academy of Dance and are the first to trial a Silver Swans demonstration award (before it gets rolled out globally). I am thrilled to have been given this opportunity and for being able to share it with my adult ballet students – congratulations to the twenty-eight adults who are taking part, I am very proud of you all, and please have fun!!
