English Youth Ballet

Lucy is on pointe!

One of our students, Lucy (pictured below) was accepted on an associate programme for Ballet West based in Edinburgh, which means a trip to Edinburgh once a month on a Saturday.

Lucy actually missed the original audition date owing to commitments with an English Ballet performance, however, Ballet West accepted a video audition where she was accepted.

Lucy also performed in May 2017 alongside professional ballet dancers in the production of Swan Lake at the Sunderland Empire. Lucy was also successful in securing a place where over 100 dancers auditioned for a part in the production of Coppelia.

Below is a photo of Lucy performing on stage at the Sunderland Empire in Swan Lake.

Lucy will be performing with the English Youth Ballet (EYB) in April.  Children who are chosen to participate in EYB projects have achieved a high standard of ballet.

We are all very proud of Lucy and continue to support and encourage her with this fantastic talent. What a fantastic achievement Lucy!
