United Learning: BalletBoyz Inspire Young Dancers
United Learning is a collection of schools providing excellent education to children and young people across the country. With funding from the Andrew Lloyd Weber Foundation, this year United Learning is collaborating with BalletBoyz.
Students from across United Learning are participating in an ‘Access to Theatre – AcT’ project, bringing together teachers, students and our dancers. The project is designed to widen access to professional performance and broaden the cultural experiences of young people in United Learning schools.
Kick-starting in January, Performing Arts teachers from across United Learning will come together to learn with BalletBoyz dancers, Edward Pearce and Matthew Sandiford. This continuing professional development activity will be followed by in-school workshops for students, led by all of our dancers, and the project will culminate with collaborative showcase events for students in Manchester – 16 April (The Dancehouse) and London on 17 April (Stratford Circus).
