We would like to congratulate Graciela Mariqueo Smith for gaining a place as a Cecchetti Scholar. The Scholarship Scheme which is based in London offers a thirty-week training programme for talented young dancers. At the end of the year students have the opportunity to perform at a prestigious venue. In June 2013 students performed at The Royal Ballet School, Covent Garden. The scholarship programme includes Classical Ballet, Body Conditioning, Limbering, Point Work, Performance Skills, Repertoire and a visit to the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
