Our guests of the day were from the English Youth Ballet who are performing Sleeping Beauty at the Grimsby Auditorium. Dominic Marshall is the assistant Director and Senior Choreographer and Sarah Murdoch is one of the Dancers from our area.
The English youth ballet tour the country and get in touch with local dance groups and clubs who put forward the best of their members. This gives them the chance to audition and work alongside the professionals in a big ballet production.
Sarah started dancing when she was nine-years-old, which is apparently quite late for ballet, but when she got the opportunity for an audition, she knew that this was her one and only chance to be part of it. She was successful and now feels she’s caught up with her colleagues.

We also met Harry Cooper who is the father of Quentin Cooper, a famous presenter for the BBC. Harry had lots of broadcasting stories of his own. For him, he was in the right place at the right time which got him his break in radio. He has hosted programmes and performed in major radio productions.
