We are so excited to announce our competition for two lucky ballet students to win personalised video feedback on their dance variations from Dame Darcey Bussell, DBE.

 “I love how dance teaching is now able to take advantage of technology for the benefit of young dancers globally. The ability to support the physical dance environment with online feedback from near or afar makes dance learning even more exciting and accessible. Well done Movitae, I am glad I can support this initiative and I am really looking forward to viewing the variation videos submitted”  Darcey.

Any student, 10 years or over may enter the competition whether their school is on Movitae or not. If you don’t have a Movitae account, just click HERE to sign up and instructions will follow!
