Ballet seeks children for Swan Lake at Opera House

By Staff Reporter

There will be the opportunity of a lifetime for young ballet dancers in Northern Ireland tomorrow as the English Youth Ballet launch a hunt to fill roles in a production of Swan Lake.

Some 100 male and female dancers (aged from 8-18) will be offered the chance to rehearse with and then appear alongside international professional principal dancers in the production for four performances at the Grand Opera House in Belfast from November 9-11.

English Youth Ballet director Janet Lewis said it aimed to give professional performance experience to young dancers in beautiful venues close to where they live.

Auditions will be held tomorrow at Methodist College.

To register for the audition contact Miss Lewis either by telephone on 016 8985 6747 or email:
