About

Margot Fonteyn's Vision
Fonteyn Academy vs A Dance School
Dame Margot Fonteyn de Arias
Kenneth Ludden, Artistic Director
Background
Joy Brown, General Art Director
Sveinbjorg Alexanders, School Director


Dame Margot Fonteyn d’Arias envisioned an international fine arts institution in which all of the arts would be studied under one roof.


Her belief was that young artists of divergent fields of expression would enter into conversations about the core issues of art (expression, interpretation, focus, et cetera), and would consequently develop a deeper understanding of the artistic purpose of their endeavors.


She and Ken Ludden worked together to develop this concept for the last twelve years of her life, but died before the institution could be built.
