This summer, London’s wonderful all-children ballet company are reviving their 2001 hit, Ballet Shoes (based on the much loved children’s novel by Noel Streatfeild). The show marks London Children’s Ballet’s 25th Anniversary season and will be brought to life by the company’s talented cast comprising 56 young dancers aged 9-16. With specially commissioned choreography, sets, costumes and scores and a live orchestra accompanying each performance, the London Children’s Ballet productions provide an ideal introduction to ballet and classical music for young audiences and their families.
This year’s revival of Ballet Shoes will be choreographed by ex-LCB cast member, Ruth Brill who is now a First Artist of Birmingham Royal Ballet. Ruth returns to LCB 18 years after she starred as Pauline Fossil in the original 2001 production of Ballet Shoes which was choreographed by Cathy Marston.
A unique charitable organisation, London Children’s Ballet was founded in 1994 by Artistic Director Lucille Briance MBE whose goal it was to create a means-blind opportunity for talented young dancers to perform in original ballets created exclusively for them.
The Premiere is a special evening for families and an essential fundraising night for London Children’s Ballet. Funds raised on the Premiere evening alone ensure that the experience of being part of the company remains free for all the dancers. These funds also support much of LCB2’s touring outreach program into special schools, care homes and hospices.
