RSC Midsummer Dance Party flyer

Join us and the Royal Shakespeare Company for a free weekend of craft and dance workshops to create a spectacular mass dance party, inspired by Romeo and Juliet.


11am – 4pm
Avonbank Gardens, near Holy Trinity Church
Stratford Upon Avon

In a moment of peace, at a party, Romeo and Juliet meet and fall in love. Imagine it’s going to work out well. Enjoy the moment. And dance.

Artists from Kinetika will create a spectacular dance party across the weekend with activities suitable for all ages. You can get involved with making a mask, learn a dance or simply enjoy a drink and soak up the party atmosphere.


11am – 4pm
Avonbank Gardens Tipi
For all ages, free

Find us in the giant tipi for craft workshops to make fabulous things to wear and stunning decorations for the party, or learn some of the dance moves. Drop in and stay for as long as you like.

Learn our simple ‘Star-crossed Lovers’ dance by watching the film below.  The dances have been created by choreographer, Jeanefer Jean-Charles, who worked on the 2012 Olympic opening ceremonies.
