The UK's three national dance companies come to town to perform in a Big Top in the grounds of the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich. The English National Ballet, National Dance Company Wales and Scottish Ballet join forces for the first time to perform works specially choreographed by Martin Lawrance, Christopher Bruce and Itzik Galili. Each piece has been inspired by the Olympic ideal - 'faster, higher, stronger'. The historic and beautiful grounds of the Old Royal Naval College will be pulsating with energy throughout the day from 4 to 10 July with masterclasses, demonstrations, workshops and even a cabaret. A great day out for friends and families whether you want to join in or just watch some inspirational dance by the UKs three national dance companies.

 

About Old Royal Naval College

The Old Royal Naval College was built on the site of the Tudor Palace in Greenwich in which Henry VIII and Elizabeth I were born. William and Mary commissioned Sir Christopher Wren to design the present buildings in 1695 to house naval pensioners, and these became the Royal Naval College in 1873.
