I was fortunate to attend Birmingham Royal Ballet’s stay at the Birmingham Museum And Art Gallery. They have for a limited time invited visitors for a range of activities. I was fortunate to attend to have a look at some of their behind the scenes people and departments and a few performances showing the talent of Birmingham Royal Ballet. They had a selection of items from their wig department, alongside make-up, prop department, technical and musical department. 

Birmingham Royal Ballet is undoubtedly one of the finest ballet companies in the United Kingdom. With its rich history, world-class dancers, and innovative productions, it has cemented its reputation as a true leader in the world of classical ballet.

Moreover, Birmingham Royal Ballet’s repertoire is truly remarkable, encompassing both timeless classics and cutting-edge contemporary works. From the grand, sweeping narratives of Swan Lake to the avant-garde brilliance of modern masterpieces, the company’s programming is a testament to its commitment to artistic excellence and its ability to push the boundaries of the art form.

The programme arranged for us visitors showcased the company’s versatility. The dancers had an impeccable technique and  their graceful movements left the audience in awe.

Birmingham Royal Ballet has a dance track initiative, identifying future talent and nurturing them. 80 children who show a talent for dance are invited to join the Dance Track programme. The participants, who often wouldn’t otherwise have an opportunity to participate in dance, are given free weekly ballet lessons taught by Birmingham Royal Ballet staff. There was a delightful performance from youngsters showcasing their ability during this day.

Also I had a chance to see performers in college, who also did a unique piece of dance work. The dancers worked collaboratively together to create a fantastic show. 

There was also a dance warm up class to show exactly what the dancers would go through, there were a lot of french terms for ballet moves, I remember fondue though. 

The two dancers were Oscar and Sasha and they delivered a fantastic performance. They did ask for volunteers for a dance movement, no one came forward so I was one of two people called forward to move Sasha in a circle, unfortunately I walked too slowly so it didn’t have the desired effect.

At the day, there was also Sophie Walters dressed in a tutu, chatting to the visitors. 

The session was enjoyable and its great to see so much talent in a short space of time. The staff should be proud of working for such a fantastic organisation

The company have two exciting productions coming out later in the year, first being La Fille Mai Gardee and second being Luna, with their festive treat the Nutcracker also coming up. 

This is the second ballet themed thing I have seen this year, and whilst I was skeptical of ballet, I am beginning to enjoy it as a dance form.
