Congratulations to Ava (Y7) and Eleanor (Y6) who have both been selected to dance with the English Youth Ballet when the company performs Swan Lake in September at York’s Grand Opera House.
The EYB provides professional performance experience for talented young dancers.
Mount girls are accustomed to having classmates who are performing in major productions. At the age of 15, Mount old scholar Elizabeth Dalby also danced with the EYB while a pupil, performing in the Nutcracker. Amelia Cook (old scholar) and Ellie (College II) have performed with the York Light Youth in productions such as PT Barnum and West Side Story. Ava’s classmate Lilia appeared last November in a touring production of Nativity the Musical.
Ava dances with the Northern Ballet Academy in Leeds. Eleanor is a keen ballerina and was delighted to have been selected following a very competitive auditions process.
