A few testimonials from students of the 2010 summer course
Once again, I want to say a big big "thank you" to all the great teachers from the course. I am so glad to be here for the second time. I've learned so many new things and I think now I am more stronger and more positive for the art calls dance! Moreover, I want to thank the Russian Ballet Society for the scholarship and the teachers who believe in me!!
These two weeks made me fell more free about my movements in dance and made them coming from my heart deep-deep inside! Everyday I want more and more to continue it all my life.
Thank you all
I don't know how I can go back to work after this!!! You guys are the coolest, most inspirational, least nastiest ballet teachers ever. I love you guys!!
This summer course was a very good experience for me and I am really happy about coming here. the teachers was GREAT!!! I am so thankful from all the teachers because they have learned me a lot of things. Here I met new friends and we had a great time... See you next year....!!
It's a wonderful way to spend the summer for someone who loves dancing. Well organised classes and many individual attention. I enjoyed the two weeks although it was short, especially the Pas de duex classes which was not available back home. The experience of working togehter everyday towards a performance is such great a feeling.
A big THANK YOU to all...
See you next summer!!!

I'm so happy joining this course. In two weeks I've had a really great time, I've enjoyed it so much. It's a great experience. I'm sure that I'll never forget this course and I may be here next year too!! I think I become stronger in just a few days and I really want to thank all teachers. I also had fun while we were dancing and moreover we met people from different countries and we became friends. These days had passed really quick and I shall miss everybody and everything in here!

I saw the Russian Ballet society page on internet and all I thought was I was going to learn how to dance ballet modern etc... But I've came here and I learned much more thing, such as how to feel the dancing, how to be better in dancing, to make new friend and mostly of all to SMILE!!!
So I want to say thanks to all of the teachers that made me happier, stronger and of course with confidence!

It's really good at the Summer School, and I hope I will come next year.
It has been very good fun for me as I was not just doing ballet I was doing all sorts of dancing so I will come next year! (It is very tiering though)
I really like the nRussian Ballet Society's Summer Course even if I'm here for the 3rd time. I want to say THANK YOU to all the teachers for all the new experiences. I learned a lot of new steps.
Every year when I come here I have made lots of new friends.

I have had a very tiring but very enjoyable week staying at the Loretto School and dancing with the Russian Ballet Society. Coming for only the second week I was made to feel very welcome and heve learnt so much from being here. i would love to come again and hope to try and keep in touch with all the new friends I have made.
Thank you for a brilliant week.
These two weeks have been so good and fruitful to me, just the same as last year. Now at the end I feel like I'm finally getting used to the stress, so it's too bad it doesn't last longer. I feel like all of the teachers are giving me individual attention, and I also feel I have developed a personal friendship with each of them. I've enjoyed and learned a lot, and the pas de duex class is very necessary, because so few schools have them.
Thank you, and I really hope I'll come back next year, even though that might not be the case.
I'm so glad for coming in this course. I have learnt a lot of new types of dances. The teachers were really good and friendly with us and I would like to come again. I made new friends of different countries and I had the chance to see how individual other people are and how individual we are.

It is wonderful to experience so much culture and diversity in one holiday/work-out. My students in Australia will love the stories that I can return home with.
