Brenda Taylor School excel at prestigious Royal Academy Ballet competition


THE Brenda Taylor School of Dance had exceptional success at The Royal Academy of Dance Competition in London last week.

This very challenging and prestigious ballet competition which attracts a large field of talented young dancers from across the country to the Royal Academy Headquarters, consists of three demanding classes taken in front of a illustrious judging panel and large audience. Around twenty students in total were then selected to proceed to The Final including seven pupils from the Brenda Taylor School.

But the success didn’t stop there!

Jago Wright, aged thirteen was announced The Winner of The Musicality Award in the ‘Sallie Lewis’ division and then thirteen year old Charlotte Head was proclaimed the Overall Winner – winning a large monetary prize to be spent on furthering her dance studies.

Brenda Taylor BEM, Principal of The Brenda Taylor School for over 53 years, remarked, ‘We are so thrilled for all of our competitors, but particularly for Charlotte and Jago – they have both worked so incredibly hard, have a huge commitment to their classes and have persevered to have had their efforts rewarded in this competition. They were both stunning – demonstrating exceptional talent and we are incredibly proud of them. These children follow in the footsteps of many other winners from our school in this competition, and they prove that the Brenda Taylor School is still going from strength to strength after all these years, producing dancers who can compete with the best the country has to offer.”

The Brenda Taylor School offers all forms of Dance and Theatre Arts from three years old to eight three! For more information please visit their website: or see our Facebook Page: The Brenda Taylor School of Dance and Performing Arts
