Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - BUSI­NESS -

AF­TER a suc­cess­ful Euro­pean au­di­tion tour, four WA bal­let stu­dents are primed to re­turn over­seas and take the next step in their danc­ing ca­reers.

The grad­u­at­ing stu­dents from the Bur­swood-based Charlesworth Bal­let In­sti­tute ar­rived back in Perth from an au­di­tion tour last month.

Jaimie Ford (19), Ai­den Foster (18), Lau­ren Per­rett (18) and Eleisse Crouch (19) were all of­fered places at highly cov­eted Euro­pean danc­ing in­sti­tu­tions.

Charlesworth Bal­let In­sti­tute spokes­woman Lyn­ley Fudger said the au­di­tion tour had been a great suc­cess.

“All four have been suc­cess­ful and have re­ceived of­fers from sev­eral in­sti­tu­tions,” Ms Fudger said.

“They are very ex­cited to be em­bark­ing on the next stage of their danc­ing ca­reers.”

As part of the au­di­tion tour, the stu­dents spent three-and-ahalf weeks trav­el­ling be­tween schools in Am­s­ter­dam, Lon­don, Mu­nich, Basel, Zurich and more.

“They’ll be train­ing hard at the bal­let school un­til late Au­gust when they will take their places in Europe,” Ms Fudger said.
