The Royal Ballet is taking dance to the provinces with its Dance Bites tour - featuring works by up-and-coming choreographers - which begins in Sheffield tonight.

More than 25 members of the Royal Ballet are taking part in the performances, which include shows at the Wycombe Swan in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, from Thursday to Saturday and Bath's Theatre Royal on 10 and 11 March.

The tour marks the culmination of the Royal Ballet's two-year Network education project, which will involve 3,000 local students in all three venues.

Works performed will include Christopher Wheeldon's Pavane pour une infante defunte, and also feature world premieres of new ballets by Cathy Marston, Ashley Page, Tom Sapsford and William Tucket.
