    • 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.

      This is brought to you by most of B.A.D.’s ballet students, aged 5 to late teens, with B.A.D. Company members playing the lead parts.

      Worlds Of Motion beautiful and powerful music, is original composition written for Syd’s story by the talented Tim and James, who became involved in the project during lockdown and were inspired to continue Syd’s vision with Tanya Schipelbaum, Principal of B.A.D. and Artistic Director of B.A.D. Company.  They and all the students are determined to honour Syd’s work and are extremely excited to be able to bring this to the theatre, despite the difficulties of the last year.
