Madeleine writes ....
The ten days I spent at Chilton Ballet Academy CBA was an amazing experience. I was able to keep up with my academic studies as well working on my classical ballet technique. The teachers were very helpful and supportive and made sure we really understood what we were doing whether we were in yoga, contemporary and classical class. One of the things I enjoyed most were the different styles and variety of teachers focusing on different parts of the classical ballet technique, and also being able to do group work in repertoire class where we even did a piece from Balanchine. I loved every moment and was able to balance my academic studies while doing a lot of ballet. CBA even arranged a ballet family for me to billet with too.
Thank you Alana Haines and all the teachers and students at Chilton for making me feel so welcome.
