Dance Track Visits to Birmingham Royal Ballet
Each year Dance Track students are invited into Birmingham Royal Ballet for the day. During their time here, the children take part in a workshop which is lead by a Birmingham Royal Ballet dancer, they watch the dancers in Company Class, spend time with the wardrobe department and take a tour of Birmingham Royal Ballet. The aim of the day is to give the participants an insight into Birmingham Royal Ballet, and to give them an opportunity to meet dancers and to work with them in Birmingham Royal Ballet studios.
The children also come and see Birmingham Royal Ballet perform; here are some of their thoughts on The Nutcracker:
'It was super.'
'I loved the dance with the toys and the flying goose. All of the costumes were beautiful and I want to dance like the Sugar Plum Fairy.'
'My favourite parts were the rats, the magician and the jack in the box.'
'I liked how the story was made without speaking.'
'It was fantastic, I loved it!'
