Yasmine Naghdi Workshop

Principal of The Royal Ballet Company

Wow! What a wonderful workshop Yasmine gave our pupils on 14 February. The interest in this workshop extended beyond the more senior pupils to little ones who just wanted to watch and copy her much to the delight of parents. So nice to see and to hear them ask questions afterwards.  Yasmine was very thorough, patient, and enthusiastic so a big thank you for your time.
