English Youth Ballet presents full length classical ballets in the UK regional theatres with up to 100 young dancers as corps de ballet and soloists with six professional principal dancers and two character artists dancing the leading roles. Entry is by audition in the towns where the performances take place. There are seven ballets in EYB’s repertoire. Giselle, Sleeping Beauty, Coppelia, Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Ballet Etudes and our new production Cinderella in Hollywood.

We are entering our 20th year and are extremely popular in our concept. EYB is an award-winning company boasting full houses and praise for dramatic emphasis on the classics and high standards of production. Janet Lewis MBE Director (formerly danced principal roles with London Festival Ballet) believes in ‘an performance experience’ for young dancers so that they are challenged both technically and artistically. English Youth Ballet has grown in reputation becoming a logistic achievement and a miracle of choreographic management.

The Performance Course is an ideal introduction into the professional world of ballet. Miss Lewis has introduced private assessments by appointment
for parents who seek advice and guidance on their child’s balletic future.
