BAL­LET ROCKS!

Wexford People - - NEWS -

STU­DENTS AT the Wex­ford School of Bal­let and Per­form­ing Arts will com­bine bal­let and rock mu­sic at the Na­tional Opera House later this month for their an­nual school show.

‘Bal­let Rocks’ will show­case the tal­ent of the school’s dancers while also pay­ing trib­ute to the world’s rock leg­ends, in­clud­ing: Led Zep­pelin, Bon Jovi, Queen, Prince, Gary Moore, and many oth­ers from the golden oldie era, as well as more up to date mu­sic such as Imag­ine Dragons, Fall Out Boy, Red Hot Chilli Pep­pers and more.

Chore­og­ra­phers from the school have been work­ing with the stu­dents for weeks in prepa­ra­tion for the show.

The school pre­vi­ously staged ‘The Nutcracker’ back in De­cem­ber and, more re­cently, stu­dents were hard at work for their ex­ams in bal­let, mod­ern dance, and sing­ing.

This year’s show will be fol­lowed by a sum­mer school in Au­gust, the re­turn of classes in Septem­ber and the stag­ing of ‘Swan Lake’ for their De­cem­ber per­for­mance this year.

Tick­ets are on sale now and book­ing is ad­vised as the show runs for one night only, June 30, at 8 p.m. Tick­ets are avail­able on­line or from the Na­tional Opera House box of­fice.

PO­ETRY IN MO­TION: Wex­ford School of Bal­let and Per­form­ing Arts stu­dent Sor­cha Finn.

READY TO ROCK: Carla Fus­cia­rdi Wal­lace, Bláithín He-Ad­ley, Re­becca Mur­phy, Angie McGrath and Alan­nah Cor­co­ran.

ON THEIR TOES: Abby Or­mond and Alex Saun­ders.
