Find out what it takes to be a professional dancer at this FREE talk at The Lights on Tuesday, 3 July

“HOW DO THEY DO THAT?” If that is a question you have ever asked yourself when watching a professional dancer, then Chantry Dance Company is here to help! They are hosting a fun, FREE, and informative talk and dance demonstration suitable for all at The Lights this July.

‘Day in the Life of a Dancer’ presents a fascinating look at the dancer’s day. Learn what it takes to become a dancer, how they maintain their fitness, strength and flexibility. Learn all about how they rehearse and how they learn choreography as well as watching some fabulous dancing from the presenters. It is delivered by Chantry Dance Company’s Artistic Directors, Paul Chantry & Rae Piper, who are known as the choreographers of popular stage shows including the Olivier nominated David Walliams’s West End production of ‘GANGSTA GRANNY’, and the ‘HORRIBLE HISTORIES’ shows. Paul and Rae are highly experienced professional dancers having performed at London’s Royal Opera House, Sadler’s Wells and in the West End, who bring together all their expertise to offer you a fun and informative experience.

‘Day in the Life of a Dancer’ includes dance demonstrations and a Q&A with Rae and Paul. It is suitable for ages 7+, and is particularly good for schools, dance groups, and students studying dance GCSE, A-Level or degree – but most of all it is for anyone and everyone who wants to know more about dance!

This is a completely FREE event, but you must pre-book a ticket to reserve your seat from the Box Office: 01264 368368
