Bolton School Girls' Division Year 10 pupil, Larissa King, has
been selected to dance in the National Youth Ballet's Jubilee
performance at Sadler's Well in the summer.
Larissa has been offered a place with NYB for their special 2012
Silver Jubilee Season. She has been cast as a Baby Gorm in 'Old Man
of Lochnagar' and also takes a role in 'Colour Crazy'. She will
attend a ten day residential Rehearsal Summer School at Tring Park
School for the Performing Arts in Hertfordshire in August, and the
NYB performances will be at the EM Forster Theatre, Tonbridge
School, Kent on the 23rd to 25th August,
followed by the Silver Jubilee Gala performance at Sadler's Wells
on the 2nd September. Larissa was offered a place after
attending three auditions in London. She said: "I was delighted to
be chosen and am really excited about the opportunity! It will be
great experience and training for the future."
Currently Larissa attends a British Ballet Organization
scholarship scheme, travelling to London once a month for free
professional lessons. Scholarships are awarded to talented students
who show potential, both technically and artistically, providing an
opportunity to study classical ballet to a high level. The
specialized training has enabled Scholars to audition and gain
places at some of the UK's finest vocational dance schools and many
have progressed to become professional dancers.
Larissa attends local dance classes at Mavis Berry and Helen
Allen School of Dance in Leyland where she trains in Ballet, Tap,
Modern and Classical Greek. She has been dancing since the age of
three and performing solo's at local Dance and Stage Festivals
since the age of 5.
