Alex Johnson – Stanley Hawkins Bursary Recipient

Ballet Cymru are so grateful to the London Ballet Circle for the Stanley Hawkins Bursary, enabling a talented young dancer the opportunity to take part in our Wales International Ballet Summer School. This year’s recipient is Alex Johnson.Alex2

Alex started dancing at the age of 7, after being inspired by Dick Van Dyke in the film “Mary Poppins”. At the age of 9, he was offered a place on The Royal Ballet’s Junior Associate Program. He later gained a place at The Royal Ballet School.  During his 5 years there, he performed at the Opera House (on the main stage and Linbury) and Opera Holland Park. In 2016, he continued to train in classical ballet at Elmhurst Ballet School where he will graduate in 2019 with a Level 6 Diploma in Dance.
