Television: Ballet Chancers

Recommended Posts

I came across this 2008 TV show called Ballet Chancers.


The show sees Ireland's most famous ballerina, Monica Loughman, take on the challenge of a lifetime.

Can she turn six streetwise hip hop dancers into elegant ballet dancers in just four months? Monica will put these urban freestylers through their paces as she attempts to teach them everything she knows about ballet in preparation for a performance of The Nutcracker with Monica's own company, The Irish Youth Russian Ballet Company in December.

If they don't make the grade Monica will not put them on stage.

As Monica puts the hip hop dancers to the test, will she succeed in turning them into ballet dancers or will they remain ballet chancers?

All episodes are available on this website.

Oh that's a fun series! I watched bits and pieces. The "chancers" are really sweet. I'd love to know where they all are now.

I just checked out the link and it does look like fun. I've added it to my list. So many videos, films, books, performances, exhibitions, festivals, events...so little time! Thanks for posting.

I started watching this and enjoyed what was there, but unfortunately the videos are quite incomplete. Is there somewhere else to find the full episodes?
