Rare chance for aspiring dancers to find out what it takes to succeed in the dance world
Young men and women considering a career in dance have a rare opportunity to find out what it takes to make it in the world of professional dance at an evening of ballet performances hosted by The Dance Movement in Farnham and featuring a post-show question and answer session.
The show takes place on Thursday 18 May from 7.30pm at the Farnham Maltings and features four contrasting works, each performed by Images Ballet Company, the graduate company from acclaimed dance school, the London Studio Centre. Answering questions from the audience afterwards will be Jennifer Jackson, the Artistic Director of Images Ballet Company.
Rachel Palmer, Programme Director at The Dance Movement says: “This is a very special event; we are thrilled that Jennifer Jackson will be taking questions. Having performed principle roles in the likes of Swan Lake, developed a career in choreography, lecturing and now as Artistic Director for Images, she knows the business inside and out. Knowing how dedicated you have to be to make a success of being a dancer, Jennifer will be sharing her experiences and answering people’s questions honestly and candidly.
“The four pieces show the great diversity of classical ballet today, which is great for young dancers to see, particularly if they are considering making dance their career. Do contact us in advance with your questions for Jennifer,” says Rachel.
A short video providing a taster of what’s in store for the audience can be viewed on The Dance Movement’s website at www.thedancemovement.co.uk. The four performances take inspiration from fairy tales and explore romance and loss as well as surreal articulations of the female body. It’s a show not to be missed, with stunning costumes and innovative musical accompaniment.
Tickets are £12 for adults with significantly reduced rates for concessions and group bookings. Visit www.thedancemovement.co.uk/images-ballet-company to buy tickets and submit a question in advance. Images Ballet Company is touring the show in five counties during May and June.
