Birmingham Royal Ballet Worshop

On Thursday 28th January, KES played host to Birmingham Royal Ballet who provided a fabulous workshop based on their production of Swan Lake, currently being performed at The Mayflower Theatre this week. The day began with a workshop for our feeder primary schools, and we welcomed Durlston Court, Princes Mead, Twyford and Springhill. These pupils enjoyed a fun warm up at the barre, an opportunity to choreograph their own version of the famous Cygnet Dance and a short introduction to mime in ballet. It was lovely to see such creative ideas flowing from such passionate young dancers! After that, it was the turn of KES Lower School pupils and they enjoyed learning the choreography for the Spanish Dance from the first act of Swan Lake. The girls picked it up impressively quickly and really showed off a Spanish flourish and flair in their final performance.
