The sessions will be with international choreographers; Dominic Marshall, Ursula Hageli and Richard Slaughter.

The dancers will also undertake ballet classes.

The English Youth Ballet felt that most youth ballets were rehearsed and staged in London requiring young dancers and their families to travel vast distances.

"It gives great enjoyment to the performers, teaches them something of how a professional performance is put on and provides the public with a carefully prepared entertainment"
Dance Expression magazine (2000)

EYB have decided to do the reverse and come to a particular region, rehearse in a school and produce a ballet in their theatre.

Previous EYB's ballets have been a great success. Dance Expression magazine (2000) said, "it gives great enjoyment to the performers, teaches them something of how a professional performance is put on and provides the public with a carefully prepared entertainment".
