"People have asked me why I chose to be a dancer. I did not choose.
I was chosen to be a dancer, and with that, you live all your life."
Chantry School is proud to be the official vocational school of the UK contemporary ballet company CHANTRY DANCE
"What you do for all your students is allow them to be themselves, you give them the platform to take risks and not feel judged...and because of that your students flourish" (Chantry student's parent)
NEW ONLINE PERFORMANCE - OCT 24th-31st
Chantry Dance presents...
EXTRACTS FROM THE IMPRISONED MOON
We could not be more thrilled to announce our latest performance work will be part of the Guildhall and Stamford Arts Centre's FREE Autumn Digital season. The Imprisoned Moon is a Lincolnshire folktale that tells of the time the Moon came down from the sky to walk over the Lincolnshire Carrland.
With stunning aerial hoop acrobatics and contemporary dance, Chantry Dance presents two extracts from this story. In the first, we see the Moon in the night sky, shining her light onto the sleeping earth below. In the second, the Will O’the Wisp leads the traveller to the Moon and they dance together, protected by her light.
The piece features CALLIE COYLE as the Will O'the Wisp, RAE PIPER as the Moon, and PAUL CHANTRY as the Traveller.
Chantry will be presenting the full-length version of The Imprisoned Moon in early 2021, but in the meantime, we hope you enjoy watching the extracts starting on Oct 24th for one week here.
