Behind the Scenes

Every morning, six days a week, our dancers take class. It helps them find new heights of technical excellence and maintain their peak fitness. Get a privileged, in-theatre view of their training, with commentary by artistic staff, then sit in as our top dancers rehearse for an upcoming production. Behind the Scenes is perfect for ballet lovers of all ages, and is a great school holiday activity.

 

This coming Wednesday 24 April, sit in as Adam Bull and Amanda McGuigan rehearse a pas de deux from The Merry Widow for our upcoming performances at New York’s Joyce Theater. 

The rehearsal room is a very special place. It’s a place where a lot of knowledge is disseminated and where dancers can hone their craft. It is where roles are built and developed, to the point where they are ready to be put on stage. It’s quite an amazing atmosphere.
