ACADEMY STUDENT SECURES PLACE IN ENGLISH YOUTH BALLET PRODUCTION; SLEEPING BEAUTY

Isobel Telles Hatfield, now 13, attended her first Ballet class at Better Academy Performing Arts when she was just 10 years old. In February 2017, Isobel auditioned for, and successfully secured a place in the English Youth Ballet’s production of Sleeping Beauty. There were two auditions, both held on the same day; one was for junior 8-11 years and the other, senior 12 years and up. The audition lasted around an hour and a half and took place in the form of a ballet class. The class was lead by international professional teachers and watched by the Director and an Associate Choreographer. The production takes place in April 2018 and we are thoroughly looking forward to seeing Isobel take the stage.

Congratulations Isobel, this is a huge achievement - well done!

100% PASS RATE FOR ACADEMY BALLET STUDENTS
