Calling all aspiring young dancers!

The Cecchetti Centre Events for Young Dancers Let's Make A Competition Thursday 9th April is an opportunity for children holding Grade 1 and Grade 2 who have not participated in the Cecchetti Classical Ballet Awards but might be interested in entering in the future.
The day will be an opportunity for students to become familiar with working in a competition format and presenting work in a theatre studio setting.  Children will work together in the morning preparing some simple class work exercises and guidance will be given on what to expect form a competition, how to dress and present work on stage.  Students will then perform to an audience of parents and teachers at the end of the afternoon giving them the opportunity to practice their 'competition skillls'. The event will take place in the Studio Theatre at Westminster Kingsway College, near King's Cross, London.
For an application form and further details of this event visit www.cecchetti.co.uk/cecchetticentre/youngdancers but the closing date is this Friday 27th March so do be quick!
