‘How do they do that?’
Is this something you've ever thought when watching a professional dancer perform?
If so, we can answer that question and more for you!
Join the Co-Artistic Directors of Chantry Dance Company and West End choreographers, Rae Piper and Paul Chantry, for a fascinating look at a day in the life of a professional dancer. Learn what it takes to become a dancer, how professional dancers maintain their fitness, keep strong and flexible, how they rehearse and how they create choreography for performance.
Rae and Paul are among the UK's finest and most experienced contemporary ballet dancers, as well as being international and West End choreographers responsible for award-winning shows including David William’s 'Gangsta Granny', operas, and numerous contemporary ballets. They will provide a true 'behind the scenes' look at what dancers do in their daily lives.
An event not to be missed for any aspiring dancer, or anyone involved in dance. Even if dance is not something you've previously had an interest in, this family friendly talk and dance demonstration is a great way to introduce yourself to the world of dance!
You'll also be able to see Chantry Dance Company perform this autumn, in their stunning new modern ballet production of "Dracula". Featuring SHANNON PARKER (former Principal Artist with San Francisco Ballet and Northern Ballet Theatre, also appearing on Sky TV's "Got to Dance" and "Britain's Got Talent" as a finalist and Wild Card winner).
Don't miss this mesmerising, remarkable new interpretation of the classic Bram Stoker story, where Dracula is no longer confined to a dusty old house in Transylvania...instead you'll find him running a charming cabaret club in London, complete with performing vampires! It's certainly something to get your teeth into...
