Elmhurst School for Dance News 2012
During the course of our annual visit to Birmingham Royal Ballet and Elmhurst School for Dance, David Bain presented the Ballet Association’s Annual Award to Nastazia Phillipou. From Cyprus, Nastazia is a first year sixth Elmhurst student. Our award will help towards the cost of her taking part in the Genée competition later this year in South Africa. Nastazia enchanted members, talking informally with them during lunch, after which we watched her in class taught by ex-BRB dancer James Grundy. We will watch Nastazia’s progress with great interest.
