Dancers from the Christine Anderson Theatre School in Rugby will be jetting off for a ballet master class in New York over half-term.

The 23 youngsters are due to take part in a class with Antonio Carmena, a soloist with the New York City Ballet, tour the David H Koch Theatre at the Lincoln Centre and watch an NYCB performance in the evening.

They are also booked to visit the new studios at the Joan Weill Centre for Dance and take a contemporary class there, watch a Broadway musical and go ice skating in Central Park.

And they will be kept warm during their trans-Atlantic trip thanks to special NYC hoodies sponsored by Fine & Country estate agents in Rugby, which they are pictured above wearing.

Principal Christine Anderson said: “The kids are so excited. They have new hoodies - kindly sponsored by Fine & Country - and have themselves raised over £1,500 to pay for all their classes. So much to do, so much to see in New York!”
