Birmingham Royal Ballet Celebrates 21st Anniversary of Dance Track

Birmingham Royal Ballet is celebrating its 21 anniversary of running Dance Track, a programme designed to identify and train children aged between six and eight years of age who show potential for ballet.

Those children then receive free ballet training which ultimately gives participants the chance to apply for the Royal Ballet School and Elmhurst Ballet School associate programmes.

Around 80 children are selected and are given free weekly ballet lessons taught by Birmingham Royal Ballet staff, as well as free ballet shoes and uniform.

“2018 has been a phenomenal year for the Dance Track programme and our celebrations over the last two weeks have been a huge success; testament to the hard work, dedication and commitment of our passionate teachers as well as the parents and students themselves,” Rebecca Brookes, Dance Track Programme Manager said.

“Dance Track changes peoples’ lives. We aim to reach out to all areas of Birmingham and offer a unique experience, not only teaching ballet, but skills and discipline for all aspects of life. We are really proud of our Dance Track programme and the opportunities it provides.”
