We are absolutely thrilled to announce another Nutcracker success story!
One of our ten-year-old students is to perform in Birmingham Royal Ballet's The Nutcracker at the Royal Albert Hall, London, this Christmas. This is the first time BRB has staged this production at the Royal Albert Hall, and he will be performing alongside 70 professional dancers and a full symphony orchestra.
Places were highly sought after, as 620 children auditioned for just sixteen parts (8 boys, 8 girls) at Urdang Academy, London. After passing the first audition, he was recalled for a second audition at Urdang Academy where the final cut was made.
We are so proud of him, and he thoroughly deserves this achievement. After only having his first ever ballet class 20 months ago, he has achieved so much in this short amount of time – huge congratulations!
What a Christmas surprise! One student performing in Birmingham Royal Ballet's The Nutcracker at the Royal Albert Hall, and another performing in English National Ballet's Nutcracker at the London Coliseum and Southampton Mayflower!
