Calling all budding performers!
Ballet Ireland’s popular summer school returns to theatres around the country in 2018. 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 week-long 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?" – 2017 Summer School Participant
The programme is suitable for boys and girls ages 6+ with or without dance training.
