Fairy­tale role for ded­i­cated dancer

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A HILLING­DON ballet dancer is pre­par­ing for her West End de­but in the new adap­ta­tion of Snow White.

Mi­caela In­fante, 14, is re­hears­ing ev­ery Sun­day along with 55 other young dancers, se­lected from more than 500 chil­dren who au­di­tioned.

The keen dancer, who is now at Tring Park, a per­form­ing arts school where she learns both ballet and mu­si­cal theatre, won the role of the Queen’s evil ac­com­plice.

Snow White is staged by Lon­don Chil­dren’s Ballet (LCB), which stages a West End pro­duc­tion each year per­formed by tal­ented dancers aged 9-16.

Jenna Lee, a chore­og­ra­pher for LCB, said: “Mi­caela has been won­der­ful to work with.

“She is an ar­tic­u­late, ver­sa­tile dancer but also has a great un­der­stand­ing of telling a story through a char­ac­ter role. She has re­ally de­vel­oped through­out this re­hearsal process.”

Snow White will be per­formed at the Sadler’s Wells Pea­cock Theatre from April 23 to 26.
