Sofia: Hard work pays off

Posted on Tuesday 7th April, 2015
Rehearsals so far have been so much fun. We have recently had a run through of Act 1 - it's all coming together and I can't wait until the shows! LCB has really helped my confidence - in fact - so much that I decided to audition for the Royal Ballet School's full-time training! I was delighted to be offered a place and I will train there from September. LCB has showed me that being in a ballet company is hard work, but rewarding. I know that without London Children's Ballet I would not have got…

Zahra: Rehearsal Selfies

Posted on Tuesday 7th April, 2015
Rehearsals are not just hard work, but a load of fun and excitement!! Making friends, gaining experience and just being part of the LCB family has just been the best thing ever!  Especially when your waiting to get the schedule for the next rehearsal, because there's just so much excitement to see if your called! If I'm having a bad day, looking back through rehearsal selfies with everyone, never fails to cheer me up! I definitely wish that the rehearsals/shows could last forever!  The moment o…

Sophie: A dream come true

A Dream Come True  I have just got into the London Children's Ballet! I was very VERY excited when I heard I had got into the company! It was a dream come true! We had the casting on the 7th of December and I was really looking forward to it although I wasn't feeling very well and I know I did not do my best, but I still did as much as I could that day. I hope I get a good part! I would really like to be little snow white, the jester or the snowflake soloist. I am very excited to see which part…

Luke: Six new dwarf friends

Posted on Tuesday 31st March, 2015
Here in the life of LCB it is so enjoyable but also hard work. Its now less than a month before the first performance and it is getting very exciting but I am also getting a little nervous! In the rehearsals we are learning so much from Jenna and Amy but also from the other amazing dancers. Its incredible to watch older and more experienced dancers such as one of my older friends James who is playing the prince. I hope when I am older I’ll get to perform as a principal character one day because …

Callum: My dancing diary

Posted on Tuesday 31st March, 2015
December 2014 I’m looking forward to over a hundred hours of ballet.  And I’m very excited because I now know what I am in the casting - except I don’t really know what the parts are. I’m looking forward to January when we have our first rehearsal - wondering who Snow White and the Prince are - and to get started.  January to February 2015 When I arrived at the first rehearsal session I was nervous because I was the first boy to arrive so when I walked into the waiting room it was completely …

LCB2 Tour: Joyful faces

Posted on Tuesday 10th March, 2015
LCB was an AMAZING experience as I really enjoy dancing, especially ballet. The costumes and rehearsals were lots of fun and I made loads of kind friends. Before the tour, I had never been to a special needs school or a residential/care home but it was very exciting. I enjoyed seeing joyful faces in the audiences and I'm looking forward to auditioning for the stage show again next year . I really hope I get to see everyone again and hopefully get to perform in another LCB production. Amari Webb…
