Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh will recognise the importance of young people in the Performing Arts in the United Kingdom, by holding a Reception at Buckingham Palace World Dance Champions Flawless and stars of Sky1”s Got To Dance Alleviate are just two of the talented dance acts invited to perform for Her Majesty The Queen.
The Duke of Edinburgh and 450 specially invited guests at Buckingham Palace on Monday, 9th May. The event celebrates young talent in British Performing Arts and as guests arrive at the Grand Entrance, they will be greeted by Her Majesty and His Royal Highness in the White Drawing Room. They will then proceed to the Ballroom for theatre performance which has been inspired by Shakespeare”s Romeo and Juliet.
The performance will present a light-hearted, modern interpretation of Shakespeare”s story and feature a collaborative dance piece between Flawless, Alleviate and DJ Ironik, culminating in a cleverly choreographed finale that will see Flawless and Alleviate re-create the balcony scene. Other performers at the event include Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Anne Reid MBE, Bryony Hannah and Amy Robbins, in addition to rising stars such as Tamsin Egerton, Daniel Kaluuya and Rumer.
Following a successful 60 date national tour, Flawless, who are Ambassadors for The Prince”s Trust, begin a short residency at Sadlers Wells Peacock Theatre from the 10th until the 28th May. Alleviate will be performing internationally over the coming months and can also be seen at this year”s Latitude Festival. Representatives of many institutions and charities who support the performing arts industry in the United Kingdom will be in attendance, including organisations with a long history of Royal patronage such as English National Ballet, Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and National Youth Music Theatre.
The Ballroom at Buckingham Palace is used by The Queen for State banquets and official entertaining, and has been used variously as a hall for concerts and performances of the arts. At 36.6m long, 18m wide and 13.5m high, the Ballroom is the largest room in Buckingham Palace. It was opened in 1856 with a ball to celebrate the end of the Crimean War, given by Queen Victoria and the Prince Consort.
