Dance Forward held it’s first Back to School Summer Intensive Course last August at the RAD. Royal Ballet stars, Sarah Lamb, Federico Bonelli and guest Roberta Marquez and ENB Principal Begoña Cao were joined by ex Royal Ballet dancers Stephen Beagley, Vanessa Fenton and Andrew Ward.  Sarah Lamb taught a solo from Raymonda Act III whilst Vanessa Fenton choreographed a moving piece especially for the students to Faurés Requiem. In addition to the student course, Dance Forward now runs a popular Easter and Summer Adult Ballet course with Sarah Lamb and Federico Bonelli passing on pro tips on how to improve their technique.  Several attending were dance teachers who enjoyed the course especially as it was a tax deductible expense!

 “I enjoy teaching the students… for me it is about passing on the joy of dance and creating a passion for performing. Every step you take at the barre and the centre is preparing you for the stage. That is why Dance Forward is different. I want to give the students the opportunity to be taught and inspired by today’s star dancers. It is not often you have the chance to extend yourself, and your grand allegro, by the likes of Sarah Lamb!”  Andrew Ward, Director, Dance Forward.
