Sir Jonathan North Student Chosen For Her First Professional Ballet Role

We are proud to announce that Year 9 student Safiye has been chosen for the role as a sugar plum attendant in Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite by the English Youth Ballet.  

This will be Safiye’s first professional production and she told the Leicester Mercury, ‘It is a privilege to be chosen for this company.  I am very nervous but very excited about this opportunity.’  You can read more from the Leicester Mercury by clicking here.

Safiye will perform alongside star international principal dancers such as Phillip Tunstall and Monica Tapiador at the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre later in September.

We wish her the very best of luck with the performance and hope that this is the start of a wonderful career in ballet.
