Acosta Advanced Training Hub +16
We are thrilled to unveil our exclusive AATH +16, a training initiative by the Acosta Dance Centre designed for aspiring classical ballet dancers. Launching in September 2024, this programme, artistically led by the legendary Carlos Acosta, promises a unique training experience marked by artistic and technical excellence, coupled with unwavering pastoral care.
The AATH +16 stands as a unique and distinct extension of the Acosta Dance Foundation’s Advanced Training Hub. Unlike the Foundation’s programs, the AATH +16 is a payable initiative designed for aspiring dancers aged 16 and above who are seeking professional training. Spearheaded by the legendary Carlos Acosta, this program introduces his distinctive training method to nurture dancers under his expert guidance. What sets the AATH +16 apart is its exclusive focus on dancers aged 16 and above, offering them an opportunity to delve into a comprehensive curriculum that integrates various dance genres, including classical ballet, modern dance, Cuban folklore, choreographic composition, and repertoire from the award-winning Acosta Danza. The program not only aims to cultivate technical prowess but also endeavors to instill a holistic understanding of dance, fostering creativity, discipline, cultural appreciation, and essential human values. This transformative experience is designed to shape aspiring dancers into well-rounded individuals who derive joy from their artistry while continuously growing both artistically and personally.
