If after seeing Ballet on the Buses you resolved to see more ballet in a slightly more formal environment you could do worse that start with a showcase of young talent from the Birmingham Royal Ballet in Dynamic Dance: New choreography from BRB dancers at the Hippodrome this Saturday and Sunday.

A programme of new works currently being created by members of Birmingham Royal Ballet. Contributing to these performances are BRB First Soloist Kosuke Yamamoto, and Artists Samara Downs, Kit Holder, Aonghus Hoole, Jenny Murphy, Glyn Scott and Nathanael Skelton.
