Following their training sessions with Ballet Cymru, two NEW Dance practitioners are now leading the Duets scholarship programme in Ysgol Tŷ Ffynnon. They teach 25 scholars for two hours each week, an hour of ballet and an hour of Capoeira (an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics, and music). 

The project is funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and the Arts Council of Wales, and provides fantastic opportunities for the students to develop dance techniques and performance skills, as well as attend professional productions (and even perform curtain raisers for them!)

You can follow the scholars' progress on Twitter, with the hashtag #balletforall.
