Two young girls from Bromley are set to realise their dreams when they appear in English National Ballet’s production of Swan Lake later this month.
Ten-year-old Isabella Engles, who attends Raglan Primary School, and twelve-year-old Winnie Willsmer, from Coopers School in Chiselhurst, are currently in rehearsals for the famous Tchaikovsky ballet, which will be performed at The Hawth Theatre, Crawley, on November 25 and 26.
The youngsters, who are among the most talented young dancers selected from West Sussex and the surrounding areas, will rehearse for just ten days for the production.
Principal dancer Amy Drew, who is training the young cast, said: “Rehearsals for Swan Lake are going very well in Crawley and I am really enjoying getting to know the young dancers.
“It is wonderful having such talented young people all in the same place and working together. I think that there is a unique and wonderful synergy that takes place because all the dancers learn so much from watching each other and from watching the professionals too.
“Our production of Swan Lake is such a dramatic ballet and I think that the young dancers really enjoy telling the story as it is very powerful and gripping.”
