I’ve been doing a bit of work experience for New English Ballet Theatre and have been lucky enough to be able to sit in on Company Class (I’m actually watching them right now) and attend a number of rehearsals for their upcoming show. They are a modern ballet company of 14 dancers and focus on working with new choreographers, artists, designers and musicians to bring new work to a wider audience.

Their latest show, Tryst: Devotion and Betrayal, will be on at the Peacock Theatre from the 2nd to 5th July (Book via Sadler’s Wells here) and at Lanterns Studio Theatre on the 9th and 10th July (Book via Lanterns here)
The pieces are really varied and show what am excellent range the company has, I’m really looking forward to seeing all of the pieces over the next week or so and then I’ll be backstage helping the company each night of the show.
