Schools Dress Rehearsal

Our schools dress rehearsal event occurs every year prior to our premiere performance at the Riverfront Theatre in Newport.

7-10 schools are invited each year and are identified through projects we have outlined throughout the year enabling the schools to have free access to a professional ballet performance.

Many of our Duets students attend and for many, it is their first taste of live theatre.

The dress rehearsal operates in partnership with Newport LIVE and enables Ballet Cymru to gather feedback through post-it notes, filmed interviews, comments, feedback sheets assigned to teachers, and photographs.

We offer assistance with travel costs should this be a barrier for schools.
