Young ballet performers to tread the boards with English Youth Ballet
DREAMS have come true for ten of Hampshire's young dance stars after they were selected to perform on stage with the English Youth Ballet.
Mutyat Anibaba, 9, from Shirley, Millie Banton, 15, from Woolston, Charlie Randall, 14, from Bitterne, Amber Weyman from Bishop’s Waltham, Megan Ford, 15, from Horton Heath, Alexandra Browne, 17, from Old Bursledon, Tamzin Ellis, 12, from Warsash, Ella Clark, 12, from Marchwood and Mukeni Nel, 15, from Weeke were selected to dance in a performance of Swan Lake.
Before they tread the boards, they will join the company’s principal dancers at The King Richard School in Portsmouth for ten days of intensive rehearsals.
Principal dancer Julianne Rice Oxley said: “The young dancers we are working with in Hampshire have great energy and attack.
“Working in a professional environment gives the students a unique insight into life in a ballet company.
“I feel very privileged to be a principal with EYB as I get to work with some of the UK’s most talented young dancers. I find them incredibly inspiring.”
Swan Lake will be performed at The Kings Theatre in Southsea on October 18 and 19.
