In August 2021, "The Hat in the Cat", a completely bonkers rhyming poem written by Jennifer Welch, was brought to life using dance movement. This super fun 'experiment' resulted in the birth of the Cheeky Poetry theatre company, and the rest is history!

This emerging company is all about energetic and engaging dance theatre which tells vibrant stories on stage through the use of poetry and dance. 

A bit more about us...

Cheeky Poetry is a dance theatre company combining the spoken word and poetry with dance. Written, directed, choreographed and performed by Jennifer Rose Welch alongside the amazing dancers, Cheeky Poetry is on a mission to tell stories and spread joy to audiences through the use of spoken word, choreography and performance.  


It creates well choreographed and cleverly timed animations of stories told through rhythmic verses and rhyming couplets. The content is engaging, relatable and mostly upbeat. Topics vary from the deep and meaningful to completely bonkers and super fun, but all are deeply committed to providing top quality entertainment.

Since being established in August 2021, Cheeky Poetry has made appearances at the London Hospital Tavern, The Mulberry theatre and the London Palladium for Britain's Got Talent.
