Monday 21st, Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd December 2020

10.00am-2.00pm (with 30 min lunch break)

Watch Party for family and friends on Wednesday 23rd Dec at 2.00-2.30pm

We have a limited number of bursary places available for free, or pay as you can. If cost is a barrier to participation, please let us know when you are booking.

Each day will be packed with a variety of creative tasks and sessions, led and guided by a glorious mix of balletLORENT dancers. 

Come and celebrate, dress up and express yourself in true balletLORENT style with this year’s Children’s Christmas Cracker.

A chance for children to dance, perform, imagine and re-write together an alternative version of the classic Christmas song ‘12 days of Christmas’.

Get your turtle doves, French hens and golden rings at the ready and let’s put that partridge in a pear tree. 

Come join the fun, a thrill of hope and let’s get this weary world rejoicing.

Places are limited (we recommend no more than 2 children from the same household per screen), and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. Please book early to ensure a place.

The course will be delivered online through Zoom. To take part in you will need access to a computer or tablet, with internet connection.

A member of the balletLORENT team will remain online during breaks to talk to children and answer any questions they might have.

Parts of the Children’s Christmas Cracker will be recorded, and may be used in publicity (social media and website) and official reports.
