'Behind the Scenes' is a programme open to the whole community.
Any school, community group or individual with an interest or curiosity about dance is welcome to visit the company during our rehearsal seasons where you can watch the professional dancers take class and the creation of new work.
This programme provides the opportunity for the community to engage with the company and learn what a professional dancer's work day involves, as well as finding out how what goes into the process of creating a contemporary ballet piece.
The programme is completely free of charge.
The residents and staff of Newton House Care Home
"It was an absolutely lovely experience. Just beautiful"
"I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was wonderful. I can’t wait to see the full show in September"
"It was very, very good. I would love to see the whole show. I have never seen anything like that before live. It was amazing seeing what goes on behind the scenes and all the hard work that gets put in"
"I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was something different, looking forward to seeing the show"
"(We) found it to be an incredibly lovely experience, and it was something different that we haven’t been able to do with our residents before. Seeing the joy on their face, and listening to their comments and praise on the bus home was just fantastic, and are still talking about it today! We were fascinated by seeing the process of working through the choreography and the talent of everyone involved. We will be booking our tickets next week for both performances next month!"
