London Ballet School offer for Essex student

A TIPPY-TOED student has waltzed her way into a prestigious ballet school following a highly successful audition.

Charlotte Wightwick gained a coveted place at The Central School of Ballet in London and will have the opportunity to train as a professional ballet dancer.

Only around 100 students gain entry each year to take part in exclusive classes, reserved for dancers with the highest potential.

Louise Judd, Charlotte’s dance teacher at Helena Romanes School in Great Dunmow, is very proud. “Many congratulations to Charlotte,” she said. “She will now have the opportunity to take part in classes designed to complement her existing regular training and progression in her classical ballet training.”

Charlottes programme will include Classical Ballet, Contemporary, Pointe work, Repertoire, Pilates and Creative dance. And, as an associate student, she will also have the chance to take a part in the end of year performances alongside senior students on stage at The Unicorn Theatre.

Mrs Judd added: “The programme offers invaluable preparation for full-time dance training. Many associate students move into Central’s Senior School and other leading ballet and dance schools once they reach 16.”

Charlotte will be taught by a group of elite teachers including the School’s Director and former Royal Ballet Principal Bruce Sansom.
