West London School of Dance is proud to be part of English National Ballet’s Ballet Futures: The Pipeline Project.
This new children’s training programme aims to encourage and incentivise more dancers from traditionally underrepresented groups (African Diaspora, Caribbean, South Asian and South East Asian heritage) to participate in professional ballet training at the earliest possible point.
Run in association with English National Ballet, this platform will provide gifted and talented young dancers aged 8 and above the training and space to grow into their potential as young artists.
Following an audition, the participants will receive:
free weekly training at our school
financial support towards shoes and school uniform
the chance to work with English National Ballet dancers, artists and teachers throughout the year
access to English National Ballet’s building, the Mulryan Centre for Dance, with additional support for travel to and from East London
Twice a year, English National Ballet representatives will also visit us to offer class, host a Q&A and share feedback and support!
The audition will be held on the 9th January 2022 and we are now looking for participants. You can download the audition application form here
If your child loves to dance and is aged 8-12, and your family is of African Diaspora, Caribbean, South Asian or South East Asian heritage, please contact us to arrange an audition at email@example.com
Ballet Futures: The Pipeline Project is supported by the Leverhulme Trust
