Today we are announcing the departure of our Head of Dance, Rachael Hunt. Rachael joined us in July 2021 and has been instrumental in taking us forward in our ambition for the school. Her contribution to the students and the delivery of our vocational dance programme has been strengthened by her input. We are sad to be loosing her to The Royal Ballet School where she joins as their International Artistic Manager.
Of her time at the school, Rachael said:"I have been lucky enough to have had the unique experience of working at Young Dancers Academy over the last few years. The dedication and work ethic of the staff and students alike is remarkable. I wish all the students at the school every success in the future."
"Rachael has been a huge force for good at the school and her ideas and approach have been energising for us all. We are all thrilled for her news and know Royal Ballet School will be lucky to have her join their team", says Gavin McCaig, our Director of Business Operations.
We wish her all the best for her new role and look forward to her visiting the school regularly as a guest in future.
