A Winslow dancer is living the dream after being chosen from 200 young hopefuls to dance with the English Youth Ballet in The Sleeping Beauty.

The 11-year-old will be at the Waterside Theatre, in Aylesbury, in three performances on August 24 and 25.

The young dancers in the cast will experience the life of a professional ballet dancer, working at the Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School in Aylesbury in a 10-day intensive rehearsal process.

Olivia will dance in the Honesty Dance and she will play the role of a Cryonite, an ice fairy.

Company manager, Ben Garner, said: “Working with English Youth Ballet will be one of the highlights of these talented young dancer’s careers, to date. The audiences watching EYB are in for a unique and exciting experience too.”
