A YOUNG ballerina’s dreams have come true after being accepted into the English Youth Ballet.
Year 8 Uppingham Community College pupil Angela Wilson, 12, has been cast in Swan Lake, which will be performed at the Theatre Royal in Nottingham on July 27 and 28.
The ballet company offers opportunities to dancers who are not based in London and Angela had to beat off some tough competition to be cast.
Principal Jan Turner said: “I am extremely proud of Angela’s achievement as she auditioned against a strong field including many older candidates.
“She is extremely hard working and dedicated to all forms of the arts and I sure she will really enjoy the experience.”
