Ysgol Y Cribarth Duets Scholars – Trip to Theatre Brycheiniog and their curtain raiser!
The Duets Scholars at Ysgol Y Cribarth has had a very exciting term so far! In readiness for their curtain raiser performance, they visited Theatr Brycheiniog and were treated like V.I.P.’s
They had a tour of the theatre and met the Director and also the Head Technician. The scholars learnt so much about the Creative Industries and had the opportunity to ask questions to the team at the theatre.
Following the tour, the scholars performed their amazing dance piece, created by Clara and Beth, dance practitioners at Impelo, as a curtain raiser for Ballet Cymru’s production of ‘Giselle’. The funding from Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Arts Council of Wales, enables Ballet Cymru to provide transport and tickets for the scholars and families to attend the theatre and watch the professional performance. It was amazing to see the children perform for the first time on a professional stage and speaking to the proud parents afterwards was a delight.
‘I had no idea how good this was going to be. I’ve never see a ballet before and it was so good! The Duets Scholars performance was amazing and they were all so excited about this evening!’ Duets Parent
