When we heard Moorland Ballet Alumnus, Paige Bestington, was going to be performing Swan Lake with the English National Ballet Company at the Palace Theatre Manchester, we ceased the exciting opportunity to take the Academy students, for a day of inspiration and for them to enjoy a wonderful example of where hard work and determination can take you.

Artistic Director Lynsey Kidd reflects, “Paige was always a driven and determined student, who made the most of all opportunities during her time with the Academy. We are very pleased for Paige as we follow her exciting career, it will be a very proud moment to see her performing as an artist of the English National Ballet company today.”

Ballet Academy students will be exploring Manchester Art Gallery and finding stimulus for choreography and new creative works. In the afternoon we will be watching the matinee performance of Swan Lake performed by English National Ballet. This is an important part of our students’ training and development and the beautiful ballet will be made even more special, watching Paige as an artist of the company.

Sixth Form student Emily Rothwell says, “I am really excited to go and watch the English National Ballet and to gain more insight into becoming a professional dancer. It’s always fun to go on inspirational trips with the Ballet Academy and enjoy the experience with my friends.”
