Attleborough young dancers selected for English Youth Ballet show in Norwich

Budding young dancers from the Mulbarton and Attleborough areas have been selected to be part of the English Youth Ballet's production of the romantic ballet Giselle.

The award-winning English Youth Ballet will take to the Norwich Theatre Royal stage from Friday, June 29 and Saturday, June 30.

Attleborough teenagers Rhiannon Harris, 14, and her sister Anabel, 12, who are members of Judith Fox School of Dance were selected.

Rhiannon is looking forward to taking to the Norwich Theatre Royal stage. She said: 'I started dancing when I was about 5. I am not sure why – I think my mum wanted me to! I really liked it and carried on.'

'I am really looking forward to it for the performance experience and learning new techniques. When I am older I want to go into the music business. I play the piano and guitar and would love to be in a band.'

Heather Kelly, 14, from Mulbarton, Mia Kruger, 10, of Attleborough, Abbie Thompson, 14, of Carleton Rode, and Kate Walsh, of Attleborough, have also been selected.

English Youth Ballet's large cast ensures that each ballet is performed with the scale and grandeur which was originally intended.
