At Cygnets we believe all of our pupils are stars. Many chose to study the NATD Russian Ballet syllabus and achieve excellent grades, whilst some go on to study at a ballet academy or dance school. Our students past and present have earned scholarships to prestigious dance academies such as the Royal Danish Ballet, the Royal Ballet School, and The London Studio Centre, as well as starring in dance roles in West-end musicals, film and theatre. We are proud to maintain a 100% pass rate of NATD exams with all students achieving a Merit or Distinction grade.
Whatever path our students take, we know that each and every one learns the joy of dance and the enormous self confidence it provides.
Since joining Cygnets Ballet just two years ago and under Nataliya's careful supervision Joe has amazed us with his physical ability and pace of learning. Joe was snapped up by the Royal Ballet School at his first audition, initially as an associate member, and has since progressed to a full time student with full scholarship. It is a pleasure to teach such a talented, graceful and intelligent student who has the potential to become a truly great dancer.
We are overjoyed with Joe's success at the Royal Ballet School and his development since starting at Cygnets Ballet. Nataliya's knowledge of the Vaganova technique and ability to develop talent is first class.
Melanie has been a Cygnets student since the age of three and is one of our true talents, excelling in performances and NATD grades. Melanie is now a promising stage and film performer having most recently starred in a leading child role in a British movie filmed in Budapest. She continues to have private ballet lessons and group dance classes at Cygnets inbetween her busy theatrical and modelling schedules!
Melanie's thorough grounding in ballet technique has given her a huge confidence to excel in so many different performing arts including singing, dancing and acting. We owe everything to Nataliya's attention to detail.
Elan studied dance for two years with Nataliya and is now a full-time student at the Royal Danish Ballet School in Copenhagen, having been accepted on her first audition. The Royal Danish Ballet is held in very high regard being one of the oldest in the world alongside St Petersburg and the Paris Opera.
Elan was one of our most gifted students at Cygnets. We are so proud to have been part of her success at the prestigious Royal Danish Ballet School.
