Antony Dowson Takes Next Generation Of Dancers On Tour With KABERESQUE
Antony Dowson, who was a former principal at the Royal Ballet and in his early career danced with Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev, two of the most iconic figures in ballet, is artistic director of Encore, a dance company of dance students from the prestigious Tring Park School for the Performing Arts in Hertfordshire.
Antony will be directing the Tring Park School students - the dance stars of the future - in a UK tour of a unique show called Kaberesque, a daring fusion of song and dance.
Dance students in the upper sixth form at Tring Park School will be performing with fellow musical theatre students for an evening of dance and musical theatre.
Audiences can expect to see and hear an exciting selection of material that spans time and genre and is testament to some of the greatest writers of cabaret, dance and musical theatre, among them Mack The Knife, All That Jazz, Tango De Roxanne and This Is Me!
Tring Park School boasts a glittering alumni including director and choreographer Drew McOnie, who won the 2016 Olivier Award for Best Theatre Choreographer for his work on In the Heights and directed Baz Luhrmann's Strictly Ballroom in the West End, and King Kong on Broadway.
Other star alumni include Daisy Ridley (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), who started her training on the dance course at Tring Park, Lily James (Mamma Mia Here We Go Again, Disney's Cinderella,Downton Abbey and War and Peace) and Jessica Brown-Findlay (Downton Abbey).
