Dancers from as young as 6 years, through to 13 year-old graduates on the brink of their senior training years, will present a mixed programme of celebrated classical exerpts, as well as award-winning original choreography.
The anticipated jewels of this year’s gala programme are the school’s original mounting of Frederick Ashton’s Sylvia Acts I & III, and VJPD’s inaugural presentation of George Balanchine’s Serenade.
