Worlds of Motion is a children’s ballet especially written for Basingstoke Academy of Dancing (B.A.D.) by the late and dearly loved Syd Chapman, with music composed by Tim Benson and James Wood.
It is a mythical story of the gods and goddesses of the planets, moons and milky way battling against Chaos, who is constantly interfering. With the help of The Magician, the lovers, Icarus and Selene, triumph over Chaos and bring order to the Solar System.
Beautiful and powerful, World of Music is an original composition written by Tim and James for Syd’s story. They became involved in the project during lockdown having been inspired to continue Syd’s vision.
Performed by most of B.A.D.’s ballet students, aged 5 to late teens, with B.A.D. Company members playing the lead parts.
Act 2 will mainly be a demonstration of the 17 Dance World Cup Finalist Dances for 20 - 21, showing the full versatility of the Academy with Commercial, Lyrical, Contemporary and Musical Theatre work.
