Starting this October, English National Ballet School has partnered with us to deliver its new Professional Trainee Programme, the ENBS Juniors Programme, and a brand-new series of Ballet Classes for Semi-Professional Dancers.

All classes will take place in our studios at bbodance headquarters, Battersea.

This is a joint initiative between ENBS Artistic Director, Viviana Durante and our Director of Artistic Development, Julie Bowers.

"I am so thrilled to be working in partnership with bbodance to increase our reach and continue to inspire young emerging dancers from around the world. bbodance’s beautiful studios on the River Thames provide the perfect outlet for creativity. It has been wonderful to see recent graduates enter the next stage of their career on our new trainee programme and I look forward to welcoming participants to our new classes there this autumn," Viviana Durante said.

"I am delighted, along with Viviana, to be part of this very exciting partnership. Together we will provide the highest calibre of facilities, teachers, and pianists to reach out, support, and give opportunities to Vocational and Semi-Professional dancers during these strange and unprecedented times," Julie Bowers said.
