Covent Garden Dance Company is a company that prides itself on finding unique and beautiful locations around the world to create world class ballet and dance theatres. Our beautiful touring dinner theatre concept is becoming more and more popular with blue chip destinations and private estates.
As a company we now have two fully operational annual venues in the UK and Dubai/UAE and with another one in development in France and another in the USA. We hope to develop several more over the next five years to create an unprecedented number of ballet and dance locations worldwide.
DESERT PALM DUBAI:
We presented our third year of performance at the glorious Desert Palm Dubai in February 2018. This oasis of beauty sits on the outskirts of the metropolis that is Dubai City. Desert Palm Polo Resort boasts some of the most beautiful views towards the great city which was one of the major influences in confirming it as our second permanent venue.
Ballet Under The Stars Dubai started in 2015 as a private performance but saw its first public performance in January of 2016 with the fabulous Lucia Lacarra and Marlon Dino headlining a bill of world class performers. Following a hugely successful opening performance in January 2016, the second year saw its date moved slightly later to the second weekend of February and ensuring slightly warmer evenings. 2017’s starry partnership of the wonderful Mara Galeazzi and The Royal Danish’s Principal Gregory Dean produced touching and sensitive performances of Kenneth Macmillan’s Bedroom PDD from Manon as well as works by Tim Podesta and Alastair Marriott. They were joined by stars from Staatsballet Berlin, Mariinsky and many more.

BALLET UNDER THE STARS DUBAI 2019:
2019 will be the official 3rd Year at Desert Palm Resort will be even grander and even more glamourous. With a long term commitment to Covent Garden Dance from our headline sponsor Spinneys Dubai giving us a much deserved indorsement for our work in the UAE, we are determined to ensure that the Dubai and UAE audiences get a show they will remember.
CHATEAU CHENONCEAU. LOIRE VALLEY FRANCE
We are currently in discussion with the incredibly beautiful of Chateau Chenonceau. The Château de Chenonceau is a 16th century château spanning the stunning River Cher, near the small village of Chenonceaux in the Loire Valley in France. It is one of the best-known châteaux of the Loire valley and (in our opinion) without doubt the most beautiful. An architectural mixture of late Gothic and early Renaissance, Château de Chenonceau and its gardens are open to the public. Other than the Royal Palace of Versailles, it is the most visited château in France. The château has been classified as a Monument historique since 1840 by the French Ministry of Culture.
BALLET AT HATCH HOUSE 10TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS:
2019 will unbelievably mark ten years of ‘Country House Ballet’ at Hatch House.
Hatch House was the venue where it all started and is without doubt the ‘ancestral home’ of The Covent Garden Dance Company. Its beautiful 17th Century Dutch Walled Garden gave us the perfect romantic setting for our theatre and the beautiful house and grounds give our annual July audience a spectacular location in which to indulge themselves.
