About the Show

Ballet Chancers sees Ireland's most famous ballerina, Monica Loughman, take on the challenge of a lifetime.

Can she turn six streetwise hip hop dancers into elegant ballet dancers in just four months? Monica will put these urban freestylers through their paces as she attempts to teach them everything she knows about ballet in preparation for a performance of The Nutcracker with Monica's own company, The Irish Youth Russian Ballet Company in December.

If they don't make the grade Monica will not put them on stage.

As Monica puts the hip hop dancers to the test, will she succeed in turning them into ballet dancers or will they remain ballet chancers?

Tune in every Sunday evening from November 16th to find out.
