Wider Learning


Opportunities to broaden our students training
Penzance Ballet School children's craft Mazey Day Lafrowda Hall for Cornwall Duchy Ballet

We think it’s crucial for our children to see performances to link their weekly training with professional ballet, so each year we take the children to see live shows: sometimes Duchy Ballet or national companies.

We also think it’s important to widen our students’ knowledge and understanding so we offer workshops and bespoke learning resources – for example theory guides and booklets looking in more detail at the ballets that we take the children to see; focussed workshops; home conditioning schedules. Examples of the learning booklets and other resources we produce for our students can been seen here.

We give the children the opportunity to take part in the annual Mazey Day processions in Penzance and each year the children love to make part of their costume in our guided craft days.
