Under 5 Minutes
1. The Royal Ballet - Doncaster Dances
This summer The Royal Ballet, in partnership with Cast and Doncaster Council, set themselves a mission to get Doncaster Dancing. Doncaster residents, primary schools, sports clubs, care homes and dance schools were supported with online resources from the Royal Opera House, alongside remote direction from The Royal Ballet to learn routines inspired by Romeo and Juliet.
Created in Quarantine
2. Yama Dance Company - The Bolshy Ballet
Bath based Yama Dance Company created this film in lockdown as a fun way to stay connected as a company as well as get a bit creative online - which is the only space they can meet at the moment.
Dance On Screen
3. NOCTURN - EXHALE
A community dance film devised and directed by NOCTURN’s Artistic Director, John Darvell (who happens to be a guest on our podcast Talking Moves), EXHALE is a reminder of why it is so important to take stock, breathe, and embrace the great outdoors.
