Chance to Perform

If you are interested in performing, you found the right group! 

You do not have to be an experienced dancer to take part in the show; complete beginners are welcome too. If you enjoy dancing and performing, or have always dreamed of being on stage, just talk to Yuka.  She is able to give you parts that suit your strengths and enhance your abilities.


The programme will be a double bill of a comic ballet, The Bright Stream, and another light hearted ballet that imagines a ballet company going through rehearsals for Don Quixote.

There will be plenty of dancing and lots of fun thrown in!


There will be three performances over two days.  The dates are Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd June 2018 with a dress rehearsal on Saturday 26th May.  Generally rehearsals for the whole cast will take place mainly on Saturdays (after classes) and on Thursday evenings and, for those who can make it, on Tuesdays, Wednesday afternoons and Fridays after classes at Jericho Community Centre. The amount you dance in the performance can be arranged to suit the amount of time you can give to rehearsing; please feel free to discuss this with Yuka. The only cost to dancers will be a contribution towards the hall hire costs of £4 per rehearsal.


If you are interested, please send Yuka a message by e-mail or phone, or simply turn up to one of the rehearsals.  You will not be signing your life away just because you ask for more information or come to see what things are like. You can decide after you have seen a rehearsal or two whether or not you would definitely like to take part.  But please let Yuka know if you are in or not at the earliest possible opportunity.  It will be a lot of hard work, but it will all be worth it in the end.  There are many people around who have taken part in previous years’ performances so just ask them if you want a first-hand account of how wonderful and exhilarating it is to be on stage!
