  • Build confidence and learn dynamics of performing

Level

You should have knowledge of classical ballet vocabulary, be confident executing grande allegro, pirouettes, and some pointe work

BALLET DANCE COMPANY - IS IT FOR ME?

City Academy's Ballet Company is a performing company of advanced (non-professional) dancers which focuses on technical advancement, repertoire learning and performance, as well as ballet and music history and the engagement of choreography as a means of storytelling beyond the technique. 

Dancers interested in the Ballet Company must be proficient in an advanced/intermediate knowledge of diverse ballet vocabulary and technical execution as time is focused on technical advancement and rehearsal, rather than foundational learning and vocabulary. 

It is a safe space of challenge, exploration, discovery, and creation.  

The Ballet Dance Company is for those who have completed Improvers level ballet classes at City Academy, an equivalent ballet course, or who have experience in ballet performance.

COMPANY MEMBERSHIP

The membership fee is £80 per month. There is a minimum membership period of 3 months. This will cover you for all rehearsals and shows for the duration of your membership. (Note: Additional cost for costumes will be decided amongst the company each year and will be kept at a minimum.)

If you wish to discontinue your membership, our team are on hand and you would simply need to email info@city-academy.com with 14 days notice before your next payment date. 

COMPANY DIRECTOR

The Ballet Dance Company is led by Sophia Priolo. Sophia is an American actor, dancer, and movement director with a passion for teaching. She trained in classical ballet with the Alabama Dance Theatre school and company, where she performed Swan Lake, Les Sylphides, Paquita, The Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella, as well as contemporary ballets such as The Messiah, A Christmas Carol, Peter Pan, and other works set by resident and guest choreographers. In 2008 she attended the Joffrey Ballet School in NYC and in 2009 she performed in dance festivals around the southeastern United States and was a finalist in the Alabama ACES competition.

No Venue

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
