The Nott Ballet documentary, which was made by Broadway Cinema and was first shown at The Theatre Royal in Nottingham, when Birmingham Royal Ballet performed there on 10th and 11th May.
The free screening on the 22 June will give all those who took part the chance to watch the film on the big screen for the first time - especially the young people involved and their families and friends.
Nott Ballet brought world-class dance to the heart of St Ann’s and Sneinton in May, with around 60 young people learning ballet with Birmingham Royal Ballet.
The project included a week of intensive dance workshops, before the young people involved put on a performance inspired by Birmingham Royal Ballet’s ‘The Grand Tour’ at the Nottingham Arts Theatre in Hockley.
The project was also photographed by local photographer, David Severn, and The Renewal Trust is planning a public exhibition of his photographs later this summer.
Nott Ballet aimed to introduce ballet to young people who had never tried it, or watched it before, and the documentary follows their journey as they go from ballet novices to fully fledged dancers and performers.
Suzannah Bedford, Creative Coordinator at The Renewal Trust explains:
"We wanted to give young people from St Ann’s and Sneinton the chance to learn from the very best in the world and to experience things beyond their imagination.
By teaming up with Birmingham Royal Ballet and Dance4 we were able to do that, giving them the skills and confidence to dance and perform live in front of an audience.
By documenting the project through film and photography, we’ll also be able to share it with a much wider audience, whilst celebrating young people’s experiences and achievements."
