Elmhurst Sixth Form Summer Shows 2013
For the first time ever, Elmhurst School for Dance's Sixth Form summer shows will be held at Birmingham's Ruddock Hall as part of
a unique partnership with King Edward's School and King Edward VI High School for Girls, whose Symphony Orchestra will accompany the performances.
The performances include the School's first-ever performances of a suite of dances from Birmingham Royal Ballet Director and Elmhurst's Artistic Advisor David Bintley's highly acclaimed 'Still Life' at the Penguin Café
. There will also be a new ballet by
Rambert's Mikaela Polley, a former Birmingham Royal Ballet dancer, and excerpts from Sir Peter
Wright's Swan Lake
, alongside stunning flamenco, and exciting new jazz and modern works.
The Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Peter Bridle, who is well known in the Midlands for his professional conducting work, and has been awarded an MBE for his work with young people and music.
The shows will open with Elmhurst's Annual Fundraising Gala on Tuesday 9 July. All funds raised at this event will support the Elmhurst Fund to provide student bursaries and programmes
to develop Elmhurst's facilities and excellent academic programme.
