Let’s Make a Ballet!
Calling all budding performers!
Ballet Ireland’s popular summer school returns to theatres around the country in 2017. This much-loved programme gives participants a chance to experience all that goes into making a ballet and a peek into the life of a professional dancer.
Working alongside Ballet Ireland’s professional dancers, participants will be completely involved in creating their own ballet based on a familiar story that is performed on stage at the end of the week for family and friends to come and enjoy.
The weeklong programme involves daily class and numerous workshops exploring all the component parts that make ballet; choreography, music, mime, drama and making props and costumes. It is a truly unforgettable experience for all involved.
‘When I went to sleep I dreamt I was back on stage. I loved it. When can I do it again?’
