Let’s Make a Ballet!
Calling all budding performers!
Ballet Ireland’s popular summer school returns to theatres around the country in 2016. This much-loved programme gives participants a taste for all that goes into making a ballet and a peek into the life of a professional dancer.
Participants will have an unforgettable time creating a ballet with professional dancers from Ballet Ireland based on a familiar story. This week long programme starts with class on stage with the dancers, followed by workshops in creating the choreography in addition to making props and costumes.
The young performers play an important role in the creation of their own full length ballet which is performed on stage at the end of the week for family and friends to come and enjoy.
‘When I went to sleep I dreamt I was back on stage. I loved it. When can I do it again?’
