From Alicia Beck

Thankyou so much for everything this year at the masterclasses. I had such a great time, i never expected to learn so much in the two weeks we worked. It was so inspirational to see such amazing people and to be taught by the best in the business! I enjoyed learning all the repertoire, met some really fantastic dancers and friends and all in a beautiful city which i never would have seen otherwise. All your efforts are really appreciated and I hope to some back again, but who knows what the future holds!

Many thanks and Much Love,

From Frieda (ENBS)

Thank you so much for a fantastic two weeks. I had lots of fun. I am really missing Prague now, the classes, talks, friends, cobbled streets, Old Town Square.

There were such a big variety of teachers, all with different styles and backgrounds, I learnt from each one. I really enjoyed solos with Viviana Durante, pas de deux and repertoire. I learnt so many works... At first I couldn't believe that I was standing in the same room as all these famous dancers. All of them gave time to correct

Thank you for giving me the opportunity in Prague. Your were so helpful and kind. I hope to come again soon.

Kind regards Frieda (ENBS)

From Lauren Bryden

Thankyou very much for yet again another fantastic week in Prague!! I had so much fun, it was great to meet lots of new people and i have many crazy photos of us being tourists in Prague. I especially enjoyed the Pas de Deux lessons it was such a great oppurtunity to learn the sleeping beauty pas de deux as we are never given the chance to learn anything like that at school. Watching Daria and Otto perform it was a great inspiration!! Thx again for a great week i hope to see you next year!

From Russell & Claire

Just wanted to send a little e-mail to say a big thankyou especially to yourself,Daria and Chris for everything you did for us and all that we have learned over the 2 week coarse.We both would love to come back next year and we will try to fit it round our potential jobs.We have both learned so much from dancing with such great teachers but also just from speaking to yourself and the rest of the team, we both have learned to love dance again and also learned what life as a dancer is really like. Hope yourself and Daria have a brilliant year and hopefully see you in the very near future. thanks again especially with the dentist lol!!!!

From Shylene

I have to tell you that I had the most wonderful time at the Masterclasses this year. I loved last year's Masterclasses but this year seemed even better (if that is possible!). I learned so much and it was such
a confidence builder. Thank you so much for making the sacrifices neccessary to make the program happen every year. It's been so wonderful to be able to go to Prague and dance with other dedicated dancers like me
and be taught by so many amazing and inspiring people.
It's a dream come true.
