Chance to Dance: Kristen McNally choreographs with London children

Chance to Dance was established in 1991 to provide access to ballet for children who would not otherwise have this opportunity. The project aims to provide a rich arts education experience. The young people and their families have opportunities to attend performances and other events at the Royal Opera House, learn to create their own dances, to work with musicians and to explore design ideas. Those who have the ambition and ability are assisted to prepare and audition for further training at vocational dance schools. Over 21,000 children have taken part in Chance to Dance workshops and demonstrations in their schools, and over 1,000 children have participated in regular ballet classes.

Just over 120 young people attend the weekly classes. There are several graduates in full-time professional training at major ballet schools, and others are participating in pre-vocational training at The Royal Ballet School, The Place and Central School of Ballet. Some of the young people are taking their place within the dance profession but our primary aim is for all the children to grow and develop as confident, creative individuals as a result of their experience.'I Giorni'By Ludovico EinaudiIslands, Essential Einaudi2011 Decca, a Division of Universal MusicWarner Chapel Publishers 'Atlas Hand'By Benjamin Francis LeftwatchFrom 'Last Smoke before the Snowstorm'2011 Dirty Hit
