The Ballet Barn students and teachers are thrilled to be returning to the Visual in April 2023 with The Little Mermaid.

Our version of The Little Mermaid was written by Hans Christian Anderson for his good friend August Bournonville to choreograph as a ballet and we are thrilled to share it with the audience!

The second half of the show will include The Secret Garden and a whole range of Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz and Modern Theatre dances for you to enjoy.
Choreography for the show is created by our highly qualified teachers: Aedeen O'Hagan, Adele Mealey, Lauren Oman, Niamh Callinan Keenan and Méadhbh O'Sullivan. Additionally, there are a number of pieces choreographed by our very talented students!

As always there will be wonderful dancing, great music and colourful costumes along with superb visual effects and projections by Colm of Carlow Digital. For the past 30 years, students from the Ballet Barn have been entertaining audiences with our family friendly shows - we are incredibly excited to return once again to the wonderful George Bernard Shaw Theatre.

Dirtbirds #NOFILTERS

In a world where women are expected to have the patience of mother Teresa, the arse of Jennifer Lopez, the social media profile of Kim Kardashian and the BMI of Elle McPherson the pressure is relentless. Dirtbirds the comedy duo and internet sensation present their hilarious new show ‘No Filters’ which takes a close look at the barrage of bullshit we are subjected to on a daily basis and reminds us that despite what we’re told there is NO SUCH THING AS PERFECT... (except maybe Jamie Dornan’s arse in Fifty Shades Darker.)
