Birmingham Royal Ballet’s brand-new work Luna will be hitting the Hippodrome stage in early October and as part of the show we will be bringing together a cast of young dancers aged 14-23, to perform a curtain raiser piece on the main stage.

The curtain raiser performance will be choreographed by Siobhan Hayes, who specialises in inclusive dance, and Birmingham Royal Ballet Artist Tori Forsyth-Hecken.

This is a free opportunity and open to all young people with some dance experience. You’ll spend six days working together with the choreographers to create a brand-new piece, that will be performed on Friday 4 October at Birmingham Hippodrome. All dancers will get a ticket to see the Luna show after you have performed, you’ll also receive a t-shirt as part of the project.

Auditions will be held at Birmingham Hippodrome on Saturday 13 July and are open to anybody who wishes to take part.
