I wish to place on record the Schoolís and the Boardís thanks to Ann Worley former Chairman for all her hard work and commitment in successfully bringing Elmhurst through its early formative years in Birmingham and its integration into the local community.
It continues to be an absolute delight to see the enthusiasm and dedication of the young professionals in training in our care. It is the schoolís mission to ensure that we provide the right environment, encouragement, training, support and opportunities for all who contribute; especially the staff, students, families, collaborators, prospective employers and sponsors.
The school has come a long way since the move to Birmingham in 2004 to forge a unique association with Birmingham Royal Ballet but we still have much to do to ensure that the full potential of our unique collaboration is achieved for the benefit of all.
I look forward to working with you all to help ensure the school delivers future generations of world class talented dancers.
