Maddy’s ‘liv­ing the dream’ in Sleep­ing Beauty

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A GIFTED dancer has landed a role in a pro­fes­sional pro­duc­tion of Sleep­ing Beauty.

Maddy Weir, 14, of Che­sham, is in re­hearsals for a pro­duc­tion of the bal­let. The Ayles­bury High School stu­dent is train­ing with the English Youth Bal­let for the per­for­mance, which will run from Oc­to­ber 15 to 17.

English Youth Bal­let dance coach Amy Drew said: “The young dancers are treated like pro­fes­sional dancers dur­ing re­hearsals – we work them hard, but the re­sults are fan­tas­tic!

“They learn what the life of a pro­fes­sional dancer is like. They are liv­ing their dream and they just love it.

“It is won­der­ful hav­ing such tal­ented young peo­ple all in the same place and work­ing to­gether.

“I think that there is a unique and won­der­ful syn­ergy that takes place be­cause all the dancers learn so much from watch­ing each other and from watch­ing the pro­fes­sion­als.”

The per­for­mance will be held in the Gor­don Craig Theatre, Steve­nage.
