Both our children's school and Silver Swans® enjoyed some special treats this week as Birmingham Royal Ballet toured their latest production of La Fille Mal Gardée to The Lowry in Salford.
Some of our students from the children's school went to watch the full production, and others watched Birmingham Royal Ballet's La Fille Male Gardée production specially adapted for children (First Steps - a child's La Fille Mal Gardée). Students were were able to meet the dancers afterwards.
A group of our Silver Swans® also enjoyed a wonderful day on Saturday, starting in the morning, watching Birmingham Royal Ballet's Company Class on stage. After this, by special arrangement with Birmingham Royal Ballet, Will, the company manager, gave a private viewing, exclusively to our Silver Swans®, of the re-setting of the stage, a close-up look at costumes and Q&A. The Silver Swans® then watched the matinee performance of La Fille Mal Gardée.
