Chelsea Ballet Schools has for many years presented choreographed Goldilocks Fashion Shows with our pupils, raising funds for the NSPCC and other children’s charities. Since 2011, the children have danced in a specially choreographed version of Nutcracker with English National Ballet Company in fundraising Christmas matinee Gala’s at the Coliseum, with full orchestra and a large audience.
This year over 80 of our children performed as Clara, Fritz, Party Children, Debutantes, Snowflakes, Sweets, Mice, soldiers and in several divertissements with principals and artists of the company.
It is a great privilege to be invited to dance with a world class ballet company who welcome, work with and encourage the children, giving them this unique experience. Not only is the performance a lasting memory, but they love the rehearsals, costume fittings, professionalism, commitment and everything associated with being a part of English National Ballet.
