PRIMA Dance Academy Owner Matt Williams talks about how you can discover the joy of ballet at our ballet school.
It was at the age of six that I first discovered the joy of ballet in my local dance school at my first dance classes. I will forever be grateful for everything I learnt at my local dance classes for helping me to a 10 year professional career dancing in theatres across Europe. It is this passion for classical ballet and dance classes that drove me to create the PRIMA Dance Academy and to pass on everything I have learnt to the next generation in our dance classes.The skills and techniques that I learnt at my local dance classes enabled me to audition successfully for the Central School of Ballet where I gained a full scholarship. Using all the experience I learnt at these two dance schools it provided me with the tools, technique and performance experience to gain my first professional dance contract with Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures company, the United Kingdom’s largest touring dance company.
Our dance classes aim to provide your children not just with all the technical skills they need to flourish as dancers but to help them discover the joy of ballet. Obviously we place emphasis on technique and The Royal Academy of Dance examinations and are immensely proud of our 100% exam pass rate. However that doesn’t mean we don’t make learning that technique and progressing boring. We feel our passion for classical ballet and dance classes is infectious and passing on that joy of ballet is immensely important to us.
We also place emphasis on passing on the joy of ballet to our adult ballet classes. Our local dance classes are not just limited to kids. Our ballet dance classes are perfect for any adult looking to discover dance or continue with ballet and dance classes that they may have started when they were a child at local dance schools.
Dance classes have provided me with so much joy in my life. The friends that I met when I first took up dancing at the age of 6 are still friends now. Local dance classes are a great way to meet local like minded people and dance schools are a fantastic way to develop community spirit. Our local dance school is a great way for children to meet new friends and to develop social skills and confidence. So what are you waiting for? Discover the joy of ballet at our ballet school today.
