with passion and conviction

Unlike many international ballet schools, La Companyia is run as a non-profit organisation, and relies on a few local subsidies and favours, as well as a great deal of energy and input from a group of dedicated people.  This team is passionate about dance education and artistry, and dedicated to the success of the students.

We do not hold auditions of the same kind as most other schools.  We are not looking only for pretty feet and amazing natural turn-out.  We love it when we do encounter these, but it is far from our only criterion.

We are far more concerned with seeing a sparkle in the eyes, a true desire to dance, a feel for music and the stage, and a deep commitment to making happen what can only happen when both sides are engaged.

When this all comes together, then even the most unlikely candidates can be helped to find a career in dance.
