Miss Johanna, along with two of her Silver Swans, attended a special Teachers Day at Birmingham Royal Ballet on Sunday 16th February.
They were treated to an introduction with lead team members at Birmingham Royal Ballet, followed by watching a full run of the production, which features five students from our school. The day concluded in a Q&A with team members and professional dancers from Birmingham Royal Ballet, Alys Shee, Alexander Yap and Rory Mackay, who are taking the lead roles in the performance.
Our students successfully auditioned for roles in the ballet and have been travelling from Manchester to Birmingham for weekly rehearsals since October. Our three junior students are cast as little swans, and two of our Silver Swans are cast as a Lady in Waiting, and the main role of the Queen.
