My First Ballet – Cinderella

My First Ballet Cinderella English National Ballet

The English National Ballet and English National Ballet School are back this year with their ever so popular My First Ballet shows! I took my daughter along last year to their production of Sleeping Beauty and it was absolutely brilliant, we loved it.

The idea behind the My First Ballet shows are that they are performed by second year students of the English National Ballet school, and they are aimed and a younger audience, i.e children. Adapted to an hour in length and with a narrator to help their young audiences follow the story, it’s the perfect way to introduce children as young as three to the magic of ballet.

This year the My First Ballet will be of classic fairy tale Cinderella and will kick off it’s UK tour next month in Dartford, before finishing in Manchester in July.

This production tells the story of Cinderella, who is tormented by her stepsisters and not allowed to attend the Prince’s ball. Left behind to an evening of chores, she is visited by her Fairy Godmother who transforms her into a Princess who shall go to the ball.

Choreographed by George Williamson, award-winning former student of English National Ballet School, My First Ballet: Cinderella is part of the My First Ballet series which enters its sixth year in 2017. Since its inception in 2012, over 200,000 people have enjoyed the series which has included the hugely successful My First Ballet: Swan Lake, Coppélia and Sleeping Beauty. George Williamson, said: “Cinderella was the first production I created in the series, and I’m thrilled to be revisiting the choreography and reworking it for a brand new audience. I’m proud to be working with English National Ballet and the School to lead the way in creating tailor made productions for children, offering what for many will be their first experience of a ballet performance.”
