Young ballerinas, Alyssa and Ella have been selected to perform with the English Youth Ballet, in their April 2013 production of ‘Swan Lake’.Selection came for the girls after a tough audition process involving 186 other young dancers.
“The experience was really nerve-wracking,” said Year 5 pupil, Alyssa, who has danced since she was just four years old. “I knew a lot of the techniques we had to use but it was very scary!”
Ella, who is also in Year 5 and attends the Handforth and Prestbury School of Dance with Alyssa, was awarded a scholarship to take part in the production. She said, “I was really pleased to be one of just ten people there to receive a scholarship. It’s really exciting!”
The production takes place at the beginning of April, at Preston Guild Hall.
