Dance Experience of a Lifetime for Jamie
Year 10 student Jamie Cooper had the dance experience of a lifetime in May – he was selected by his dance school, Masters of Ballet Academy in London, to dance in a concert alongside the Dolgushin School of Ballet at the Hermitage Theatre in St Petersburg, Russia!
The visit included a programme of educational and cultural activities such as watching classes at the Vaganova Ballet Academy (considered the best in the world), and attending a performance by the Mariinsky Ballet Company of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”.
Jamie trains at the Masters of Ballet every Sunday and at the Central School of Ballet in Clerkenwell as a Pre-Senior Associate (the highest level before College) on Fridays and Saturdays.
Jamie said, “The trip to St Petersburg was something I have dreamt of for years – it was truly amazing! When I leave TPS I want to audition for Upper Schools such as the Royal Ballet or Central School, and also will try abroad.”
