Italia Conti is committed to creating an environment where Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion ensure fair treatment and opportunity for all. We are committed to eradicating prejudice and discrimination based on an individual or group of individual’s protected characteristics. As a leading vocational performing arts school, our dedication to create a truly diverse, inclusive community for all our students and staff is ongoing.
Italia Conti believes in nurturing potential regardless of class, creed, race, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability; we value and celebrate the diversity of backgrounds and experiences that each person brings.
Equality ensures that every individual has equality of opportunities, the same chance to participate regardless of their background, identity, or experiences.
Diversity is about recognising the benefits of different values, abilities, and perspectives, celebrating people’s differences and our rich dimensions of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities, religious beliefs, political beliefs, and other ideologies. Diversity recognises every individual is unique and recognises our individual differences. This means promoting an environment that welcomes, respects and values diverse backgrounds, cultures, thinking, skills and experience.
Inclusion is providing a space where everyone has equal, un-barriered access to opportunities and resources without having to ask; where everyone feels valued and accepted. Where everyone can contribute and have a voice. Italia Conti is dedicated to creating a safe environment where all students and staff feel supported to reach their potential with an equal sense of belonging, and in which the rights and dignity of all are respected.
The death of George Floyd in June 2020 and subsequent Black Lives Matter movement brought an overdue acceleration of global anti-racist efforts. This was reflected across the creative arts industry, and the performing arts training sector. Like the wider sector, Italia Conti acknowledged that we must do more to actively address racism, challenge systemic and endemic prejudice, exploitation and intersectional oppression and work towards a more equal and just future. We want to create positive, lasting change.
im a professional dancer but have taught only ballet. These classes are EXACTLY what I was looking for to show some basics of contemp for my students !! Absolutely love every single Video
I’ve watched a lot of your videos and I love every single one that she teaches. THANK YOU. Gorgeous movement.
Amazing class, one of the best I’ve ever done. So easy to follow, thank you!
I’m a dancer in LA and can’t keep up with my peers on how often they take dance classes. This channel has been so helpful for me to keep up my training. Thank you for sharing this with the world. I feel like we are all dancing together even though we are all doing this at different times and in different spaces. 🖤
Best ballet teacher on the internet❤ Great explanation, enthusiasm and commentary throughout the exercise!
Thank you! It’s such a blessing to be able to access these exercises for free at home. I really truly appreciate it. Beautiful work from both in the video here
It’s fantastic. Showcases, shows, summer shows, carol concerts. It’s very full on but I don’t wake up regretting coming here. It is the best thing ever!
