Frankenstein's Wedding...Live in Leeds is a BBC live drama, music and dance event on 19th March 2011 at Kirkstall Abbey and will be broadcast on BBC Three. The audience will play a real role as wedding guests.
A spectacular moment in Frankenstein's Wedding...Live in Leeds will be the audience wedding dance. The only way you can now get a ticket for the event is to come along to a local free dance workshop in advance and learn the routine.
These dance workshops are being run by Phoenix Dance Theatre, a BBC partner, who have devised the choreography for the main event. These workshops are not run by the BBC.
The workshop will last two hours and you'll be trained by a professional dancer, you'll do a warm up and learn the dance routine for the night. Wear loose comfortable clothing that you're able to move freely in.
These workshops are open to anyone 16yrs or over with a good general level of fitness. If you are 16-17 years old you must have consent from your parent or guardian to attend a workshop and the main event Frankenstein's Wedding...Live in Leeds on 19th March. Phoenix Dance Theatre operates an inclusive policy in relation to access; the dance can be adapted for wheelchair users and people with other disabilities. It would be in our interest to know in advance if you have any special access requirements - please indicate on the booking form.
Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. If you're successful in booking a place you will receive a confirmation email. If you book a place and can’t attend please let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org so we can reallocate your place.

There will be a dance rehearsal before the performance starts to give you chance to practice it.
