ss006On Friday 16th May The Civic will host a wonderful and unique performance called The Night Ball by balletLORENT.
In the year that The Civic celebrates its fifth birthday, their calendar has been full of inspiring events, and this is no exception.
Celebrating the beauty and intimacy of social dancing, The Night Ball is a truly unforgettable experience influenced by countless movement styles from Breakdancing to Quickstep. Accompanied by one of balletLORENT’s famously eclectic and inspired soundtracks, this 70 minute show is set in the round with cabaret seating. The evening continues as the dance floor and bar remain open and the DJ plays on, giving you the chance to throw your own moves as well as the rare opportunity to be partnered by one of balletLORENT’s ten professional dancers!

You will take part in a FREE 2 hour workshop with balletLORENT’s professional dancers where you will learn steps from a couple of dances such as the Foxtrot, Jive and Waltz. On the performance night, as the professional performance ends, you will take to the floor with the dancers before the night evolves into an open floor whereby the whole audience can join in!

“Art should not leave you out in the cold; it should open the door to a possibility of a fuller, richer life. For me this happened with a performance by balletLORENT” Financial Times

“To judge by the audience’s reaction, balletLORENT has a real hit on its hands. It wasn’t just the prolonged applause at the end that bears witness to this but the audience’s eagerness to get onto the dance floor and join in as the show segued seamlessly from performance to – well, a dance” Peter Lathan, British Theatre Guide

“This is not the distant, ethereal grace of classical ballet but rather it is up close and personal and sucks the audience in” Peter Lathan, British Theatre Guide
