Doncaster dancers perform at Royal Albert Hall
Last month local dance students followed in the footsteps of some of the most famous artists in history with a stunning performance at the Royal Albert Hall, London.
45 ballet students from The Dance Space in Bawtry travelled to London to take part in ‘The Stars’ in our Eyes, which brings together the UK’s best amateur performing arts troupes for a 360⁰ dance show in the Royal Albert Hall. They performed ‘The Garland Dance’ which is based on the ‘Garland Waltz’ from Sleeping Beauty. Principal Janice Cotgreave RAD RTS AIDTA, said “The girls worked incredibly hard during rehearsals and their performance on stage in front of thousands at the Royal Albert Hall was fantastic. I couldn’t be prouder. We regularly perform at local venues, but to dance at such a famous theatre is an experience they will always remember and it gives me great pleasure to offer my students exciting opportunities like this.”
The producers of ‘The Star’s in our Eyes, Mardi Gras, have been creating thrilling events for young dancers to showcase their talent for over 20 years and are renowned for bringing together the most enthusiastic young troupes from across the length and breadth of the UK to perform at the most spectacular venues.
The Dance Space students will be performing ‘The Garland Dance’ once again in their annual show ‘The Tea Party’ at CAST on Sunday, 8th July and tickets can be purchased directly from the theatre.
More exciting opportunities are on the horizon as from September 2018, The Dance Space will also be offering Dance Scholarships and an Elite Training Programme for dance students who wish to pursue vocational dance training in the future. These are open to all dance students. For more information e-mail [email protected]
