"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)
Chantry Dance presents...
THE IMPRISONED MOON
Coming Soon to Grantham and Stamford in April 2021!
We could not be more thrilled to announce our latest performance work!
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. The soft light of her shining hair saved a lone traveller from falling into the marshy ground so he could return safely to his village. This angered the Carr’s bogles who seized the poor Moon and held her captive, plunging the village into darkness and terrifying the folk as the bogles could now roam freely. The traveller, guided by the light of a Will O’the Wisp, returned to the Carrland to rescue the Moon, so her light could forevermore keep the bogles at bay and keep the villagers safe.
With stunning aerial hoop acrobatics and contemporary dance, Chantry will be presenting the full-length version of The Imprisoned Moon in April 2021 in Grantham and Stamford.
