Performing

 

We aim to offer our students as many performance and further training opportunities as we can:

Annual Show

Our students perform in the annual Dreckly Dance Show organised as part of the St Just Lafrowda celebrations. It’s wonderfully friendly, supportive and above all a fun introduction to performance for our students.  For photos please see here.

Duchy Ballet

We are proud to support Duchy Ballet, Cornwall’s own youth ballet company. We encourage our students to audition for roles and we were proud to support Isabella, as she danced with other talented local dancers and professionals in Sleeping Beauty in 2016.

Competitions

Students of Penzance Ballet School at North Cornwall Dance Festival 2020

The Wales & West Cecchetti Ballet Awards gives young dancers who are not in vocational training the chance to participate in a competition on stage. We were pleased to take several children to enter the Junior and Senior sections in 2020.

There are several dance festivals held within Cornwall.  Each of our entrants is choreographed their own solo or group dance to showcase their talent.  We were pleased that several of our pupils received medals at the 2020 North Cornwall Dance Festival.
