Taking place on the 18th September at the London Palladium, Romantic Revolution will see Bolshoi principals will present a programme with LRBS students.
This one night only performance will also see 700 children from Lambeth, Brent, South West and West London, who have never visited a theatre to see ballet and most of whom have never heard of the Bolshoi Ballet, joining the audience at the London Palladium for free, with transport provided.
Romantic Revolution has been designed to engage young people with ballet and classic music. The programme will feature the classic Don Quixote as well as a new piece of work that has been created.
The London Russian Ballet School is based in Clapham and teaches ballet to and educates young people from widely diverse backgrounds. Its Artistic Director, Evgeny Goremykin, danced with the Bolshoi Ballet for over twenty years and founded the school on the principles of his own ballet education.
Dame Gillian Lynne said: “Dance has no barriers, it is a universal and powerful art which will always endure and should be accessible to all. This year, over 700 children have been invited to the London Palladium in September to see the LRBS pupils perform with leading principal artists from the Bolshoi Ballet, something they would otherwise never have been able to do. It will give them a chance to experience the extreme discipline of this teaching which will lead to their enjoyment of the beauty of ballet and the enriching of their souls which this kind of training will produce.”
