Perform frequently

There are three main performance opportunities at The Academy for our Premiére students. A mid-year concert features a 20-30 minute ballet excerpt. A full ballet is performed in Oct/Nov and a shortened reprise of this is performed at the Academy end of year concert. There are also a number of external performance opportunities for festivals, events and fundraising.
