Company Classes-1st July

It is especially appropriate that our Artistic Director, Annette Potter, will take the classes this Sunday as we hope that those successful at this year’s auditions will join us.
Annette is a very experienced teacher with vast choreographic experience. She worked closely with our previous Artistic Director,Gillian Toogood and since becoming Artistic Director in 2010 has won critical acclaim for her choreography of Cinderella and Beatrix, as well as her adaptations of Napoli and The Tales of Beatrix Potter.

She trained at the West Street School in Covent Garden and has been member of the Chelmsford Ballet Company since 1986. She danced many leading roles with the company, including Coppelia, Sleeping Beauty, and Nutcracker – often partnered by her husband, Andy Potter. Together they run The Classical Ballet and Theatre Dance School in Chelmsford.
