”Teddy Goes Ballet”
Royal Danish Ballet School
“The Red Balloon”
Danish Dance Theatre/TIVOLI Ballet School
The family market is a significant and lucrative part of Danish Art and Entertainment market. Royal Danish Ballet has for many years put on a children’s ballet in the midterm break as well as a family oriented Christmas program. But over the last few years’ competition from other vendors have bought more variety.
This year Danish Dance Theatre put on a new version of “The Red Balloon” originally made by choreographer /company director Tim Rushton for the RDB School. The new production is danced by pupils from the TIVOLI Ballet School, a fairly new initiative by TIVOLI Gardens, where former RDB stars Peter Bo Bendixen, Ballet Master in TIVOLI and Niels Balle, formerly leader of RDB Schools offers ballet training for children.
