The annual Piano and Dance collaboration has grown to become an important focus of the year, with all of the 1st and 2nd year Modern Ballet students involved in the creation and rehearsal process.  


Choreographic, collaborative and improvisation skills, which are now an essential part of any professional dancer’s ‘tool-kit’, have been nurtured, giving our students the opportunity to explore and challenge themselves.  


The work performed here by the dancers and pianists has been created, rehearsed, and recorded adhering to covid-safe guidelines.
