Plans are afoot for Ballet West’s international touring company to perform in Korea and China next spring.
The vocational ballet school in Taynuilt is already planning a visit to Genting in Malaysia for six public-performances of Swan Lake between August 24 and September 2 this year.
And while they are there, they will also be presenting a series of masterclasses for young dancers in collaboration with The Dance Company based in Malaysia.
Principal of Ballet West, Gillian Barton said the International Touring Company would also be returning to Genting in Autumn 2019 with its
new production of The Nutcracker.
Ms Barton said: ‘We look forward to working closely with our Malaysian partners, The Dance Company to provide opportunities for talented young Malaysian dancers and to bring the best of the classical and contemporary work to Malaysia.
‘We are now establishing further contacts in the Far East. Our repertoire for the International Touring Company will include, The
Nutcracker, Cinderella Romeo and Juliet, Giselle, and Coppelia, and well as acclaimed contemporary work and original work created by top choreographers.’
