Successful Ballet Auditions with the English Youth Ballet!

March 10, 2017

Huge congratulations to 5 of our pupils (Aimee Francis and Amy Riche Y9 and Anna Ferrier, Grace Noble and Elliemae Taverner Y7), who have successfully auditioned to take part in the English Youth Ballet double bill production – Ballet Etudes & Nutcracker Suite.  All girls attend a local dance school, The Lindsey Read School of Dance.  The production will take place in Salisbury City Hall on Friday 21st evening and Saturday 22nd matinee and evening performances.

EYB is now well-established for the production of full length classical ballets in the regional theatres of England, Scotland and Wales. The Company uses between 80-100 young dancers chosen by audition from within an 80-100 mile radius of the theatre in the area, therefore giving young ballet dancers the opportunity to experience the creative process from rehearsal to performance in exciting productions of The Nutcracker, Coppelia, The Sleeping Beauty, Giselle or Swan Lake.

This is a wonderful opportunity for young dancers outside London aged 8–18 years to perform within a professional setting.  The demand for places is expressed by the hundreds of young dancers who audition annually. Many of EYB students go on to vocational training having gained enormous confidence, invaluable performing experience and great pleasure from their involvement with EYB.
