  • Ballet Nimba is currently seeking partners to work with us on our audience development tour “We Are Nimba” for 2017. This will feature authentic cultural exchanges in the form of workshops, film screenings and short performances across England in the run up to our larger UK tour of a large scale new production in 2017-18. The “We are Nimba” project will be supported by ACE so that we can make it accessible to smaller events and festivals as well as schools and community groups. We know you know our work already so if your interested in having us do something for the Summer School in 2017 then do get in touch with penny@balletnimba.org.uk. It would be really great to have your support.
