Elmhurst Ballet School, our students and staff, are saddened by the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. We send our sincere condolences to The Royal Family at this time.
A message from our Principal, Jessica Ward:
"I have always appreciated and now more than ever, the lifetime of public service Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II has dedicated to our country and our people. Her Majesty led a life founded on selfless service. I was fortunate to meet Her Majesty a couple of times and found her to be warm, kind and very interested in Elmhurst and its pupils. I greatly admire that she led our nation over seven decades which gave us all a sense of stability and a constant and reassuring presence. On behalf of everyone at Elmhurst Ballet School, we send our deepest condolences to King Charles III, our Patron The Queen Consort, and the entire Royal Family. Our thoughts are also with our associate company Birmingham Royal Ballet, who are mourning the passing of their Patron, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at this incredibly sad time."
