Waiting in the Wings: the Blackheath High School ballerinas perform the role of fairies in Sleeping Beauty
Three Blackheath High School ballerinas, Sophia (Year 7) , Eloisa (Year 7) and Isabella (Year 6) are on tour performing a spectacular ballet, Sleeping Beauty, with top London professional dance company, Let’s All Dance.
Following a performance at Blackheath Halls this weekend, the girls will go on to perform at Sadler's Wells, London, as part of a UK tour.
The special highlight of the tour saw the girls able to return to Blackheath High Junior School to perform in front of their old school friends along with the full cast and crew of Sleeping Beauty, a special end of term Christmas treat.
Head, Carol-Chandler Thompson said ‘We are delighted to welcome the very talented dancers, to perform at Blackheath High Junior School. It is a very proud moment to see our Senior School and Year 6 girls act as superb role models for our younger Junior School girls.”
“Dance is very important to us at Blackheath High School. We know it is incredibly good for students’ confidence, poise, social skills and positive well-being. It helps girls to overcome inhibitions and develop performance skills that have an impact in other areas of their academic and personal life.”
The professional production of Sleeping Beauty has been touring since mid-November and will run until 6th January, following performances in Sussex and Kent.
