On October 30th 7.30pm Olga Marchenkova and Artemy Belyakov from the Bolshoi Ballet will dance alongside LRBS students, accompanied by award winning musicians in front of an audience to include over 500 underprivileged children from Lambeth, who will attend for free.

This is an incredible opportunity to see artists from the Bolshoi Ballet in an ambitious extension of LRBS outreach work with children in one of the most deprived London boroughs. These children could never ordinarily have dreamed of a theatre experience, so imagine the impact on them when world class Russian ballet dancers will share their art with these London youngsters.

The evening is part of a series of performances with the Bolshoi Ballet and LRBS to engage young people from poor backgrounds in the world of ballet and music. Art has no boundaries and Dame Gillian Lynne, the renowned international choreographer and director, believes art is an expression for all. The repertoire will include new works by Andrei Melanin of the Bolshoi Theatre and Vladimir Varnava, Winner of the Golden Mask together with the ballet Paquita.
