HIGHGATE BALLET SCHOOL YOUTH DANCE COMPANY: Holiday Performance Group
Founded and directed by Maddy Woolf in 2009, this is a performance group focusing mainly on Neo-Classical ballet with some contemporary dance, for children ages 8-15 that rehearses on selected dates in the Half Terms and holidays.
Dancers in these classes participate at the End of Season Showcases and selected external events, festivals and performances.
We love what we dance at Highgate Ballet School and our classical ballet and contemporary dance groups give the students new goals to work towards, plus a sense of community and team spirit which in turn inspires them. It is a wonderful way for our dancers to work together collaboratively.
