Sophie at the Royal Ballet School

A gifted Headington dancer has been offered a competitive and sought after place at one of the countries most prestigious dance schools.

Sophie (U4) has been offered the position of Senior Associate at the prestigious Royal Ballet School in September.

These places are notoriously difficult to come by and Sophie is delighted to have been offered a position. There are six Mid Associate classes nationally but these are reduced to two classes at the Senior Associate level.

Sophie has an incredible passion for dance and regularly takes part in Headington’s Dance Shows. She intends to continue developing her contemporary and wider dance skills in school while focusing on ballet in her senior associate position.

Miss Faith Jackson, Director of Dance at Headington School said: “This is an outstanding achievement and really exciting news! We’re so proud of Sophie!”
