It's being performed at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley, a stone's throw from Bromley South train station (Victoria line). A great version of the ballet to introduce younger students to the world of ballet performances. (I would suggest 8+ yrs)

HOW HAS DANCE IMPACTED ON YOUR LIFE?
.
#savethearts
.
Ballet and the World of Dance is MUCH MUCH MORE than a few beautiful images on Instagram or a video of someone executing a crazy amount of pirouettes.... Dance is transformative!
.
Dance is a Universal Language that crosses borders and enables people to communicate and convey an emotion without a word spoken...... Ballet and Dance lessons are common amongst many young children BUT a career carved out of the Dance World is rare..... The discipline, dedication and passion instilled at a young age intensifies within those that choose to pursue a life in Dance......
.
Now more than ever, as we listen to the powers of the UK Government in Westminster who deem our careers as ‘unviable’, or that we are in need of seeking out ‘better jobs’, we must remind ourselves and society of the powerful impact Dance can have on the world..... It has transformed my life & countless audience members’ lives too!
