As part of this we will be watching the recent British Ballet Charity Gala Performance which was held at the Royal Albert Hall on the 3rd June.

The last year has seen all live dance performances, cancelled. Our art has been put under immense pressure and because of ongoing Covid restrictions, we have missed seeing live galas and performances. The British Ballet Gala was a fundraiser masterminded by Darcey Bussell featuring the UK’s six main ballet companies and two major contemporary ones. The music for the evening came courtesy of the Royal Ballet Sinfonia. Not only was this a celebration of dance, but also a way to raise money for various dance related charities and to expose the brilliant work they do.

After so long away from the stage, it will be lovely to watch and enjoy the Gala together and celebrate the re-emergence of Ballet in live performance.

One of our very lucky sixth-form students, Alex, secured tickets for the Gala and alongside her Dad went to London last week. Alex hails from the Isle of Man and due to Covid restrictions has not seen her family as much as she would like. The gala was an opportunity to spend time with her Dad and have any evening filled with dance.

When asked what she enjoyed most about her experience, Alex said that she loved the performances by Rambert2 and Northern Ballet, particularly Northern’s ‘Bitter Earth’ which was choreographed by our very own patron, Kenneth Tindall.

From Scottish Ballet’s ‘Dextera’ to Ballet Blacks ‘then or Now’, we are looking forward to seeing the offerings from all the companies next Friday and being guided by Alex on the gala highlights!

We can’t wait to get back to performing and this is a massive first step in the right direction for the world of dance.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”25px”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
