Easter and Summer Dance Schools at The Hammond offer an exciting opportunity for students, regardless of previous training, to work alongside industry professionals and gain an insight into a full-time dance education.

Easter School

Our Dance Intensive Easter course gives children aged between 9 and 15 years the opportunity to participate in dance workshops. The four-day course led by The Hammond’s artistic faculty culminates in a performance for family and friends. This course is subsidised by the Department for Education and over sixty children from the school’s locality attend each year.


Summer School

The Hammond offers a residential Performing Arts Summer School and Intensive Ballet Summer School to children between the ages of 10 and 15 years. These are five-day dance intensive courses  led by The Hammond’s artistic faculty. The summer schools culminate in performances for family and friends. Over sixty national and international children attend each year. Last year, our diverse range of students most certainly raised the bar with many going on to apply for full time training at The Hammond.
