Louis Learns Ballet
Olympic gymnast Louis Smith takes his first ballet steps at RAD headquarters
Sky Sports Game Changers' mini-series ‘Louis Learns’ features Olympic gymnast Louis Smith trying his hand at new sports and activities.
For the first feature in the series they wanted Louis to try ballet, and picked us to help with the filming. RAD tutor Holly Price had the opportunity to practise her on-camera teaching skills once again (first used in coaching Strictly's Audley Harrison), as she was asked to step in and help Louis with his training. Louis then took part in a small routine under the guidance of RAD teacher Justine Berry.
The feature highlights (with a sense of humour!) the discipline and technique required to be a ballet dancer.
