Rambert School | Dance
Blending tradition in training with innovation, nurturing creativity and artistry, and with an equal focus on ballet and contemporary dance, Rambert School’s ethos is reflected in this evening’s performance.
The Spring Mixed Programme premieres newly commissioned works by some of the following guest choreographers: Kim Brandstrup, Julie Cunningham, Charlotte Edmonds, Martin Lawrance and Jason Mabana as students prepare to present the work at the Royal Opera House this summer.
Performance of iconic work by choreographers who have had a significant impact upon the development of dance provides a profound learning experience for students. This year we are delighted that second years will perform excerpts from Christopher Bruce’s ‘Stream’ re-staged by Paul Liburd.
