Twirl and jump, Spin and sparkle, Pliés and twist...Because its World Ballet day on Wednesday 23rd October!
And to celebrate we’ve rounded up a few of our many enchanting dance activities and ballet-themed events for you to attend with the family.
Did you know? : People often think ballet originated in France but it actually originates from Italy in the 15th century. It was then popularised in France by Catherine de Medici, the Italian wife of King Henry II and since then, has become a dance form practised all over the world!
Join us in celebration with some of these Fantastic events:

At night, a sorrowful Albrecht visits Giselle’s grave, but he is in terrible danger. The bitter ghosts of jilted brides rise and condemn him to dance himself to death. Only Giselle’s love from beyond the grave can save him…
A lovely and classic ballet performance to inspire all members of the family!
