Date posted: 15/03/16
Over half term Phoebe M went to take part in the London Children’s Ballet performance of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
After a week of rehearsals she and the other children, who had been selected from around the country, performed to a range of audiences including special schools and old age peoples’ homes.
Phoebe was really proud to have been selected and made some new friends as well as learning lots about how to improve her ballet techniques from experts. At the end of her time with the company each child was asked to record their experience in a short diary.
Phoebe said :
“It has been an amazing experience for me and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I have learnt lots of things along the way, not just ballet. I have seen how a performance can reach out to people of all ages and in lots of different ways.
I have met lots of different people who don’t have an easy life. I hope that our ballet brought them happy memories and made them smile. The tour has opened my eyes to things I have not seen before and I have chatted to people I have never met before. This has given me confidence.
The other children in the tour group were very friendly and the teachers were lovely. My ballet and performance skills have improved and I feel very lucky to have taken part in the tour.”
We are very proud that Phoebe has represented Burgess Hill Girls in such a mature way and spread her smile and friendly personality to new audiences.
