151 students from the U.K., South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Malta, Kuwait, and Canada entered the Challenge; of these, Brandon Lawrence and the bbodance Director of Artistic Development, Julie Bowers, chose 20 finalists. Brandon Lawrence and a special guest judge, bbodance Vice President, Sir David Bintley, CBE, subsequently chose the winners.

The pieces were commissioned by Brandon especially for this competition. No one had ever choreographed to them before you. They're meant to be listened to separately as well as together.

The film premiered at 7pm on Sunday, 19 July and received 230 shares and 29K views on Facebook in the first week.

'Ballet at the Bar(re)'


Successfully piloted in a bar, foyer and café space in Coventry and Birmingham, supported by Birmingham Royal Ballet, Arts Council England & Coventry City Council, Ballet at the Bar(re) breaks down the ballet spectacle bringing live performance right in front of the eyes of an audience.

Highly interactive and engaging for the audience, Ballet at the Bar(re) is easy for audiences to relate to and understand, regardless of age, gender, cultural background, or language spoken. It has the ability to access new audiences, targeting specific communities if desirable.

The piece exists in two models, a 30 minute one off performance, or a durational piece over an hour with audience interaction between shorter performances of the material.

dna3d and Birmingham Royal Ballet launch new Film...

Celebrate Tea Party On 31st May 2012 a tea party, hosted by Birmingham Royal Ballet, took place to mark the launch of the dance film “Keepsake.’ ‘Keepsake,’ is the final outcome of the Celebrate Project, and features, as performers, members of St Mark’s Day Centre, Perry Locks Nursing Home and the Golden Age Forum Hockley, as well as  dna3d dancers. Filmed and edited by dna3d new comer Gemma Howe,  ‘Keepsake’ took its inspiration from the stories that members of each group told to the company, who then worked to interpret these stories through dance and film. 


With an Original Score by Composer Andrew Kristy, ‘Keepsake’ was seen on 31st May, by many of the participants of the project, and there were few dry eyes in the house.


As Arts Champions for the Perry Barr constituency, Birmingham Royal Ballet initiated and supported the project and Pearl Chesterman the Director for Learning said that the project was “ bigger and of much greater importance than ever imagined.”  dna3d are extremely grateful that  Birmingham Royal Ballet looked to work with the company to deliver such a significant and special project.
