Midland Theatre Ballet – Full length ballet productions
Midland Theatre Ballet is an exciting and unique Midlands based project which aims to give talented ballet students the experience of being part of a youth ballet company for a year, culminating in a full length ballet performance at the Crescent Theatre, Birmingham.
Weekly ballet classes with experienced dancers & choreographers
Our youth ballet cast members have weekly classes taught by our faculty of experienced dancers & choreographers who have worked, or are currently dancing, within ballet companies around the world. This further strengthens the children’s technique and vocabulary of steps, complementing their classes at their local ballet schools. As our course is designed to enhance the students regular training, permission must be granted by their dance teachers.
Developing your ballet skills
All our ballets are choreographed on the students, who play a big part in the creative process. Having the students for a year allows us to get to know them as individuals, see their strengths and weaknesses, and help them develop their confidence and performance levels.
Box office successes with lavish ballet productions
We believe in the art of telling a story through dance and past productions have been based on fairy tales: Sleeping Beauty, Beauty & the Beast, The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe, Snow White, Cinderella & The 12 Dancing Princesses. Lavish sets and exquisite costumes all contribute to a truly professional performance and box office successes.
Our youth ballets are three act performances in which we endeavour to give every child their moment to shine!
