Strings & Nutcracker Suite December 21st 2013

Youth Ballet West presents ‘Strings’ a unique collaboration between choreographer Judith Sibley and cutting edge singer/songwriter Paddy Casey.  Casey’s music is raw, brutally honest while Sibley harnesses the emotion in the music to create a modern dance work that evokes beauty, passion and grace.
A number of young Galway ballet students appeared as apprentice dancers when Strings was premiered in 2004 by Chrysalis Dance. As that company approaches its 10th anniversary, Sibley, Artistic Director of both Chrysalis Dance and Youth Ballet West completes a circle by setting excerpts of her first full length work on the youth ballet company.
Sibley’s staging of Nutcracker Suite, the classic Christmas family favourite, played to sold-out audiences in Galway when it was last performed in Galway in 2010. This is a wonderful opportunity for dance enthusiasts to see some of Ireland’s most gifted young ballet dancers.
