OUR STORY

 

The Company

Dance Artists of tomorrow, being created today.

The Birmingham Ballet Company was founded to enable young dancers the opportunity to perform Classical Ballet and Contemporary Works. 

The Company stands alone in providing young dancers the opportunity to perform with a live orchestra. We are proud to provide this to our company associates, male and female, starting at 7 years of age. 

Production structures rotate, ranging from full-length ballet productions, short sharp contemporary pieces and evenings of 'three short works'.

The Company strives to provide regular performance opportunities at prestigious venues such as The Ruddock Performing Arts Centre, The Elgar Concert Hall and The Crescent Theatre, Birmingham.

The programme constitutes of three main strands, Classical Ballet, Contemporary Dance and Repertoire. We believe a balance of these areas quantifies a well-educated and informed dance artist. 

Students wishing to apply to the company must complete an application and audition successfully to become an Associate of The Birmingham Ballet Company.

Accompanied by a string orchestra, our next production, 'Recital 2020' will be an evening of Music and Dance. We will perform three works, a Classical Ballet piece, a Contemporary Work and a Classical Character Narrative piece, ‘Alice & The Hatter’. This will be created around the skill set of the associates to be premiered at the Ruddock Performing Arts Centre.
