THE BIG Ballet will be returning to the Congress Theatre on March 1 (7.30pm).

From Russia’s Ural mountains, an ensemble of 16 Corps de Ballet dancers grace the stage as part of their Size Doesn’t Matter Tour.

Formed in 1994 the dancers prove that grace, elegance, charisma and nimbleness are not just traits of the ‘thin’.

They challenge accepted social standards in a world where the pursuit of slenderness and beauty seems obsessive and proudly present their voluptuous yet surprisingly sinuous and flexible figures.

These ladies enchant their audiences with a selection of classical and modern ballet pieces in a hilarious comedy show full of fun and astonishing choreography, proving that you shouldn’t take life, or yourself, too seriously.

Performing together with Fighting Club Dance Company, these talented dancers produce a smashing cocktail of hits where the audience is presented with an unforgettable performance taking them from the land of sultans, luxurious palaces and harems to the nomadic life of gypsies - full of vibrant colours, music and wild dances.

Tickets cost £20, call 01323 412000 to book.
