PRIMARY-SPECIFIC OFFERS Royal Opera House Project Name Chance to Dance About the Project Led by the Royal Opera House (ROH), home to The Royal Ballet, Chance to Dance offers children an opportunity to creatively engage with ballet and connect to The Royal Ballet company, its dancers, choreographers and repertoire. Chance to Dance aims to reach children who do not currently engage with or have access to ballet. After 27 successful years, the Chance to Dance programme is changing. This is an exciting opportunity to become one of five schools to take part in the pilot year of the new programme. Chance to Dance offers all year 3 pupils in primary schools the opportunity to see a performance demonstration with excerpts of dancing from Royal Ballet dancers and participate in two in-school workshops led by ROH dance practitioners. A further 18 weeks (1.5 terms) of weekly ballet classes are then provided for selected children who demonstrate potential and enthusiasm for ballet. These sessions will be led by an ROH Associate Dance Practitioner from a local dance school and will take place in the primary school. These can be scheduled as appropriate within or outside curriculum time. A teacher CPD at the beginning of the project will build year 3 teachers’ skills and confidence to fully participate in the creative dance workshops and learn tools for delivering creative dance in school beyond the end of this project. Following the in-school activity, selected pupils will be invited to attend an Easter School (during Easter holidays) to create a piece to be performed alongside Royal Ballet dancers at the Royal Opera House in June 2019. Bursaries will be available for children who demonstrate exceptional potential to continue with free or subsidised ballet classes at a local dance school from September 2019. 71
