Imperial Ballet Boys Day 2019

24 April 2019

The Boys Day 2019 was held on Sunday, 3rd February at the Laine Theatre Arts, Epsom

Our Boys Day in February saw 40 boys enjoy classes in Ballet, Musical Theatre and Contemporary taken by: Michael Kopinski – Ballet; Fortu Angelini – Contemporary; and James Butcher – Musical Theatre. Kate Dickson was our pianist for the day. Comments from the boys and their teachers:

“I really enjoyed my boys dance day at Laine Theatre Arts, it was so much fun learning with all the other boys and the teachers were brilliant. My favourite workshop was the Jazz.”

“I really loved the musical theatre sessions because the teacher made it great fun. The ballet session was also really fun too. Michael [Kopinski] was a really good teacher. I found the contemporary dance session a bit tough as I had never tried contemporary before, but the teacher was really nice. It was different but really good to have classes with just boys and to have male teachers. It was a really great day – I want to do it all over again!”

“I really enjoyed the day, especially being all boys and taught by boys. I also enjoyed seeing what everyone learnt in the other groups at the end of the day. Thank you. I look forward to coming again next year.”

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for a lovely day yesterday. Zane had a wonderful time and  brought away a great deal.”
Parent of Zane

"I really enjoyed the whole day especially the ballet and the repertoire sections, which were great fun. I particularly enjoyed being able to perform at the end of the session. It was very interesting learning part of a Diana and Actaeon scene from Don Quixote.”
