“HUGE THANK YOU for the FABULOUS Pas De Deux master class. It was an amazing experience and I have always wanted to try a Fish Dive – now I have done it! There is still life in the old boy yet!”

Ray Wheaton, former Page of Chambers to HM The Queen

“It’s a privilege as an adult to be given the opportunity to learn from such talented professional dancers. Nicol Edmonds gave a master class in the truest sense of the word: it was a positive challenge for the mind and body to take familiar movements and try new combinations at a professional pace – all in keeping with En Avant Ballet’s uniquely fun and friendly environment.”

Gemma Ellis, Digital Manager at Channel 5
