This delightful Frederick Ashton double bill opens with his setting of Sergei Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, using the music's dark turbulence and brilliance to inspire some of his most thrilling choreography performed by the Royal Ballet. Witty, impassioned and sublime this ballet was the pinnacle of Ashton's romantic style. The second half of the program features Ashton's delicate, deceptively comic rendering of Louis Merante and Andre Messager's The Two Pigeons - a work rarely performed and a real treat for ballet fans everywhere.

Think breakdancing died in the '80s? Think again. This documentary rediscovers one of the most incredible dance phenomena the world has ever seen. Originally known as B-boying, breakdancing was an urban dance form that originated from the streets of New York City during the birth of hip-hop in the seventies. Three decades later, B-boying is back in full force and has evolved into an art form, reaching a level never seen before.
