‘Both Evelyn and Isla clearly love dancing and performing, and we look forward to giving them plenty of opportunity to do so at school over the coming year.’

According to the website, the Junior Associate programme is: ‘For girls and boys aged 8 to 10 who wish to take class with The Royal Ballet School, alongside their regular ballet classes.’

‘Classes run from September to July at nine centres around the UK, in London, Birmingham, Bath, Dundee, Eastleigh (Southampton), Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle and Totnes.’

The website also claims that among the benefits include an introduction to The Royal Ballet School System of Training and enhanced ballet training with the view to a full-time vocational education.

It also offers students the chance to dance with others of a similar age who share the same passion and drive for a career in dance.  

Associates sometimes have the opportunity to perform with The Royal Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet and other ballet companies, while many have progressed through the School and into the Royal Ballet Companies.
