Elmhurst Ballet Company Legacy
Elmhurst Ballet School presents its graduate year Elmhurst Ballet Company in Legacy during the school’s Centenary year. The young company collaborated with established dance artists and organisations to bring Legacy to the stage.
Jordan James Bridge, a Company Wayne McGregor artist, creates The End is Where We Start, the fifth project between Elmhurst and Studio Wayne McGregor. Frederick Ashton’s Birthday Offering is a fitting addition in the school’s celebratory year.
Bronislava commemorates the young Bronislava Nijinska, a fierce dancer and choreographer of one of the most remarkable choreographies of the 20th century, Les Noces, which celebrates its 100 years.
The company is also showcased in Argonauts, an excerpt from the jazz-based The Orpheus Suite by David Bintley, and Malambo by Elmhurst teacher Sonia Fajardo, performed for The Queen Consort on the occasion of Her Majesty’s recent visit to the school.
A new jazz dance by choreographer Cris Penfold, and Resonate by Jack Farren, an Elmhurst Ballet Company artist, completes the programme.
