James Lovell

Graduate 2018 - Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures Dancer

“Elmhurst’s diverse training gave me the technical grounding in a variety of styles, which allowed me to join Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures, and to enter the professional world with an advantage.”

Rosanna Ely

Graduate 2015-  Birmingham Royal Ballet Artist

“Elmhurst is so much more than just a ballet school and I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for everything they did for me”

James Barton

Graduate 2006 - Scottish Ballet Rehearsal Assistant/Artistic Lead 

‘I’ve been so fortunate to work with so many diverse and interesting people during my career so far. Elmhurst gave me the tools I needed to establish myself within an ever-changing industry, both as a performer and as a person. I’m incredibly grateful for the time I spent at the school, both in Camberley and at the current site in Birmingham.’ 

Orla Baxendale

Graduate 2018- MOMIX Dance Company 

"My time at Elmhurst taught me that there are no secrets to success, if you believe in yourself, work hard and learn from past failures you will see results. I have and will carry this with me through all my past, current and future endeavours"

Emma Price

Graduate 2012 – Birmingham Royal Ballet Artist

“Some of my happiest memories were at Elmhurst. You become part of more than just a school - it’s a family. It shaped me as both a dancer and a person.”

Nicol Edmonds

Graduate 2010 – The Royal Ballet First Soloist

"Elmhurst Ballet School gave me the diverse training I’ve needed to perform the demanding rep of the Royal Ballet. Not only are you expected to dance the classical rep but also modern, contemporary, tap and jazz as the company’s repertoire expands to meet the demands of modern audiences. One hour you're doing double tours, the next you’re rolling over your shoulder in knee pads. You’ve got to do it all and that’s what makes it so exciting. Elmhurst really gave me an edge and allowed me to continue to develop myself as a rounded technician for which I’m very grateful."
