balletLORENT's fairytale dance summer school

Newcastle’s balletLORENT is to hold a dance summer school for 7- to 11-year-olds from 5 to 9 August. The course will be packed with play, improvisations, creativity, storytelling—and lots of dancing.

Children will get the chance to look at traditional fairytales and reimagine them by making their own alternative versions, using their own perceptions and imaginations and focusing on dreams and nightmares, light and shade, the real and the surreal. In this they will be following the lead given by the company in their last three major productions, Rapunzel, Snow White and Rumpelstiltskin.

Delivered by experienced company dancers, it will be an artistic and fun course for children to explore dance, art and creativity.

The course will be held in MEA House Auditorium, Ellison Place, Newcastle, NE1 8XS from 9:30 to 4:30 but supervision will be available from 9:00 until 5:00.

The cost will be £125 but there will be a £15 discount per child when booking siblings. Payment plans are available on request.

For a small additional charge, children will be given the opportunity to complete Arts Award Discover.

Full details and booking form are available on the balletLORENT web site.
