On Thursday 21st February, we were invited to the dress rehearsal for balletLORENT’s upcoming production of Rapunzel at Northern Stage Theatre in Newcastle Upon Tyne. This was a fantastic experience for our young people as most of them have never seen or experienced this type of production before. The use of props, costumes and the way the movement was choreographed brought a traditional fairytale to life in a new and innovative way. It was a magical performance and we were delighted to have been asked to see it by one of the UK’s most distinctive dance companies.
The students found it easy to relate to the production after learning parts of the show when balletLORENT visited Enter and provided a workshop in January.
We would like to thank balletLORENT for both inviting us to both their dress rehearsal at Northern Stage and for conducting a balletLORENT Rapunzal workshop with our students. These were both fantastic educational opportunities for our young people.
