Next week some of you will be coming to Birmingham Hippodrome to see Love and Loss performed by Birmingham Royal Ballet. Love and Loss is a triple bill (a performance that features three different ballets).

The first two, Galanteries and The Dance House, were created by David Bintley, Birmingham Royal Ballet’s Artistic Director, and the final piece The Dream was created by Frederick Ashton. To find out more about these two great choreographers who both began their careers as dancers follow the links below.

If you took part in Still Life; A Celebration! and you want to see the show next week but haven’t let your Youth Worker know then you’ll have to get moving…you have until the end of this week!!!


Congratulations to everyone who took part in the performance on Friday. Here’s a little clip that shows the journey you took learning the finale piece!

I know you’ve all been waiting for this one! Here’s a clip of the film taken by our Sutton College students. I think this really does show just how far you’ve all come.
