Talented young dancers from one of the country’s most prestigious performing arts colleges are coming to perform in Luton.

Members of London Studio Centre are staging two innovative shows, with Intoto Dance at The Hat Factory on Thursday May 26 and classical ballet with a modern twist with Images Ballet at Luton Library Theatre on Friday June 3.

Intoto Dance will present works by choreographers Gemma Nixon, Freddie Opoku-Addaie, Luke Brown and Eleesha Drennan.

Jane Woolley, dance practitioner for Rambert, Britain’s oldest dance school, said about one performance: “The company had a captivating performance quality and great presence. The varied repertoire showed off their diverse technical ability.”

The next evening of inspiring dance performance comes from Images Ballet Company. The company is working with a range of leading ballet figures including Morgann Runacre-Temple and Sally Marie and with the Maxwell Quartet in a new contemporary classical work.

Both Intoto Dance and Images Ballet are running workshops in advance of their performances, for older children and adults to discover more about life as a professional dancer, meet with established choreographers and performers, and to learn some repertoire from each performance.

Tickets for the Intoto Dance performance and Images Ballet show cost £10 or £8 for concessions. They take place at 7.30pm. For more information about these events and to book tickets for the workshops or performances, go to www.lutonculture.com/whats-on or call the box office on 01582 878100.
