About the workshop:
This workshop will introduce you to strength and conditioning and how it is used to support performance and prevent injuries within The Royal Ballet School. You will gain tools and knowledge to improve your own dance performance, no matter your dance style or skill level. We will consider methods of reducing the risk of injury, to make sure you can keep dancing and performing! There will also be a Q&A on life at The Royal Ballet School. This workshop is suitable for senior students age 11+ with an accompanying adult welcome to join for free.
