Ninette de Valois Festival

Celebrating the 120th anniversary of the birth of Dame Ninette de Valois OM CH DBE (6th June 1898 – 8th March 2001).

Born as Edris Stannus in Baltyboys House, Blessington, she was an Anglo-Irish dancer, teacher, choreographer, and director of classical ballet.  Most notably, she danced professionally with Serge Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, later establishing the Royal Ballet, one of the foremost ballet companies of the 20th century and still one of the leading ballet companies in the world.  She also established the Birmingham Royal Ballet and the Royal Ballet School.  She is widely regarded as one of the most influential figures in the history of ballet and as the "godmother" of English and Irish ballet.


The details of this festival are being arranged and is expected to include performances by Irish National Youth Ballet on the Friday night and Bar aux Folies-Bergere on Saturday night in Tramway Theatre.
