Onisere and the Ballet Queen – Dance and Storytelling Workshop

15th June 2024

“So what you’re saying is that there have been loads of Black ballet dancers…”

Onisere wants to be a ballet dancer but there’s just one problem: she’s Black and she’s never seen any other ballet dancers who look like her. Enter, the ballet queen, Simbira, who takes Onisere, and her annoying, football mad little brother Tayo, on a fantastical journey through the history of Black British ballet.

Join Black British Ballet for a fun filled session of dance and storytelling to find out more about the black dancers who blazed a trail through British ballet! 

A pay-what-you-decide family friendly event, suitable for children aged 4-8 years old. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
