For all primary schools that attend Ballet for £1, LCB offers a free half-day dance workshop in their school, themed around the ballet the children have just seen. The aim of these workshops is to expand horizons and break down perceived barriers to ballet. Workshops are fully interactive, led by two dynamic dance teachers and a professional pianist. A short DVD featuring young dancers gets children excited about the idea of ballet and teaches some of the basics. Children then have a chance to try steps out for themselves. The pianist introduces the children to classical music and the group learns about movement, choreography and costumes.
