We came dressed however we wanted to watch the première of our wonderful musical version of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ that we created over the last few weeks. Acting, singing, dancing, animation, makeup, setting, filming, sound….the list of learning involved in this project really does go on. The attitudes and collaboration that was involved in this project was a joy to witness.

We used some older BBC Active songs and adapted the script to suit us. We are all really proud of our finished performance and hope that you enjoy it too.

Coppélia – a story of love, mischief and mechanical dolls

Posted in dance, Drama, Music

We had a wonderful time in London at The Royal Opera House: ‘A classic returns to the Royal Ballet repertory with Ninette de Valois’ charming and funny Coppélia– a story of love, mischief and mechanical dolls. The intricate choreography is set to Delibes’ delightful score and shows off the technical precision and comedic timing of the whole Company. Osbert Lancaster’s designs bring a colourful storybook world to life in this Christmas treat for the whole family.’

Read our comments to find out what we thought of the ballet.

We are busy writing reviews of the ballet and will share them on here once we have finished.

Do you know any other ballets?
