In Step to Swan Lake

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.
