LUCY SETS SIGHTS ON BALLET SCHOOL
From The Eveniong Post (Bristol)


A Teenage ballet dancer from Bishopston has been accepted into one of the most prestigious dance schools in Britain - but has been told she will have to raise £30,000 in fees in order to attend. Lucy Lowndes, aged 18, is one of only a handful of applicants to be given a place at the Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance in London, where a three-year course costs on average £10,000 a year.

And this huge amount of money is before she finds living expenses because the organisation, as with all ballet schools, is not funded by the state.

Budding young dancers learn to tap, clog and ballet
By Tom Schardin for The Savage Pacer, MN (what a great name)

Ballet isn't only about grace. It's about discipline too, but that's not always easy when a class is filled with energetic 5-year-olds.

But somehow, some way, instructor Sue Ellen Worthy gets through to 10 future dancers in her tap, ballet and tumbling class at Diamondhead Education Center. Worthy, a dance instructor for 10 years, teaches beginners and more advanced dancers in tap, ballet and jazz classes through the Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District's Community Education program.

"The tougher classes to fill are the older kids," said Worthy, who instructs more than 100 students while working part-time for the district.

This is classic ballet country and Maria's hard-working and talented young students enhanced Tchaikovsky's melodies with their polished dancing and lovely smiles.

The cast is listed by year groups and it is possible to see the students develop over the course of several productions.
