Why is this important?
This small company brings neo-classical ballet of an extremely high standard to small towns and venues that would otherwise never think of staging professional ballet. Last year they came to Glossop with 'Variations of Pointe 2'. Most of the audience had never seen live ballet before and were there out of curiosity or because children or grandchildren were keen. We were mesmerised by the experience and looking forward to a return visit. This is a piece of genuine outreach by highly talented artistes working on a shoestring and it should be encouraged.
