Ballet Hoo!

Birmingham Royal Ballet's extraordinary, ground-breaking 2006 project, Ballet Hoo! Ballet Changed My Life, proof, if any were needed, of the power of dance to change lives. Filmed by Channel4 as a four-part documentary, more than 60 young people stayed with the project through to the final stage: a slightly adapted, but unforgettable performance of Romeo and Juliet with full sets, costumes and orchestra, and with the great majority of the roles danced by the young people themselves.
