I would like to add big congratulations for all your successes this Covid Year, despite all the restrictions and interruptions. Not only for what obviously has been a lot of hard work, but also for the positivity that has been channeled to the dancers themselves, and their families, which must have had an ongoing comfort to all.

Bon Voyage Alicia!
Our stunning Full-time student Alicia Vaseo (17) has just arrived in the Netherlands to begin a Bachelor of Dance at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague.

We are so proud of Alicia and wish her a huge Toi Toi Toi for this next part of her dance journey - we will miss Alicia's gorgeous smile at the studio, but know she is going to do amazing things in Europe!

Alicia joined our academy in 2016, and we have had the pleasure of seeing her transform herself into the amazing young dancer she is today - we look forward to following her next steps overseas xxx

Bon Voyage Poppi!

Our beautiful Full-time student Poppi Eccleston (16) has just stepped off a plane in Amsterdam to take up a scholarship at the Dutch National Ballet Academy.

Poppi received a scholarship for the Bachelor Program at this prestigious institution after competing at the Prix de Lausanne competition in Switzerland in February 2020.

We have loved having Poppi at ABDA for the past 3 years - she has inspired so many with her dedication, artistry, superb technique and loving manner.. we will miss her dearly, but are so proud of her and can't wait to hear all about her new adventures in Amsterdam.

Toi Toi Toi Poppi!!
