8 year old Dales Dance student, Alex Douthwaite, achieves place performing with English Youth Ballet in Sunderland.
We are so proud of Alex in his successful audition for the English Youth Ballet's production of Coppelia in July 2023.
The ballet showcased 80 carefully selected, young dancers from across the North East of England who all undertook the rigourous rehearsal process. Travelling regularly up to Sunderland, Alex's hard work culminated in 3 performances on the famous Sunderland Empire stage this September.
We are incredibly proud of his courage and ability to tackle new steps head-on can't wait to support him further in his training. Alex currently studies Grade 1 RAD ballet and Grade 2 ISTD tap dance with us and is preparing for his upcoming dance examinations.
