Students from both The Royal Ballet School and Capital City Academy join forces in a unique collaboration.
Forty seven pupils aged 11-15 took part in two performances last Friday and Saturday at The Royal Ballet School, White Lodge in Richmond Park and at Capital City Academy in Willesden. The performances were the culmination of a 12-week project initiated by The Royal Ballet School’s Dance Partnership and Access Programme.
The performances showcased work by both school culminating with a collaborative dance piece entitled Vice Versa. This original piece was choreographed by Bim Malcomson with the dancers and assisted by former English National Ballet dancer, André Portasio.
Dance Partnership and Access Programme Manager, Ginny Brown, comments:
aDvANCE provides a unique opportunity for vocational and non-vocational dance students to exchange skills and experiences. It has been a privilege to work with the Capital City pupils and to experience their inspirational building. We are grateful to the on-going support from the Department of Education which allows these projects to continue.
