Who said the summer holidays were boring? Let’s put on a show!

If you’re aged 15-24 and have an urge to perform — ballet, dance, sword-fighting, singing: the whole works — then you’ll want to know more about the opportunity being offered by arts and personal development charity Leaps and Bounds, in partnership with Birmingham Royal Ballet and local social enterprise Citizen Coaching CIC.

The aim is to create a show in a week — a remix of a classic tale, Romeo meets Juliet — which will be performed at the Birmingham Hippodrome.

The team is looking for young people aged 15-24 to join an exciting FREE summer intensive at the Birmingham Hippodrome August 21st – 26th.

For those with experience — and those who want to tread the boards for the first time — this is a unique free opportunity to develop new skills in dance, theatre, singing costume-making and even sword-fighting and martial arts.

To find out more, meet the team at Zelig Reception in the Custard Factory, Digbeth (B9 4AT) on Tuesday 16th August between 12pm and 2pm or contact Martin at Citizen Coaching on 0121 314 7075 or send him mail.
