Professional performance for student dancers

A South Cumbrian school has devised a contemporary ballet that’s so good it’s to be performed in a professional theatre.

Queen Elizabeth School in Kirkby Lonsdale are the first to have pupils perform a contemporary ballet professionally and will perform at the Dukes Theatre in Lancaster.

To interest theatres in their work they’ve had to form their own professional youth dance company called The Curious Dance Company. It’s the brain-child of dance teacher and choreographer Jasper Marriott.

The school hopes being part of this will add something different to the children’s CVs in an increasingly competitive field for jobs and further education.
