Summer School

LCB runs two non-residential week-long summer schools for girls. All are welcome and classes are streamed by technical standard and age. LCB summer schools are always over-subscribed, so we suggest that you register early.

We do accept applications from children who do not live in the UK, but please note that we do not provide accommodation or bursaries for overseas students, and we require that English must be understood and spoken.

Junior Summer School (girls 9-12 years)

The junior week offers excellent teaching across a variety of dance styles, as well as workshops on stage make-up and choreography. In addition to being a great way to get ahead in ballet, dance and performance, it is a week packed with fun and is a great way for children to make new friends. Highlights through the programme include special performances from stars of the West End. The week culminates in a ballet performance to parents in costume.

Junior Summer School Director: Fiona Chadwick

Dates: 29 July - 2 August 2019 (approx times 9.30am-4.30pm)

Venue: Paddington Academy, 50 Marylands Road, W9 2DR

Senior Summer School (girls 12-16 years)

LCB's Senior Performance Summer School is an opportunity for dancers aged 12 - 16 to take part in a varied selection of classes and workshops based on all aspects of performance. There is no audition required. On the last day the children will perform an adapted version of LCB's latest ballet, in costume for friends and family. The objective of this week is for participants to develop their technique and to enhance and improve their presentation skills by breaking down the many attributes required for a strong performance. The senior summer school includes a daily ballet class, repertoire and solos classes, jazz dance, performances skills workshops, West End musical theatre rep, professional demonstrations, and pointe class (for those en pointe).

Senior Summer School Director: Victoria Collinson

Dates: 5 - 9 August 2019

Venue: Paddington Academy, 50 Marylands Road, W9 2DR
