English Youth Ballet


I am thrilled to have one of RESiDANCE Studios’  own dancers successfully audition and dance with the English Youth Ballet, just as I performed with them many years ago.

Elodie Matthew’s was selected for the opportunity to dance on stage at the Darlington Hippodrome in a full length ballet production of ‘Coppélia’ in April this year, after an intensive rehearsal schedule over the Easter  holiday.

I myself danced in the ballet ‘The Nutcracker’ all those years ago, and it provided me with incredible insight at such a young age as to how life would be as a professional dancer, and this experience encouraged me to pursue my career and ignited my love for performing. I am sure Elodie has also enjoyed her time dancing with English Youth Ballet, and I hope she, and our other RESiDANCE Studios dancers will have the opportunity to experience it too in the future!
