Students from Guildhall Feoffment, Hardwick, Howard, Tollgate, Westgate and Sexton’s Manor primary schools are spending six weeks working closely with Royal Ballet School teachers, discovering ballet through a series of creative dance workshops.

The young people taking part will receive their training from teachers specially approved by the Royal Ballet School.
