Fairytale brought to life

THE classic fairytale Sleeping Beauty will be brought to life by young ballet dancers who cannot wait to get on the big stage.

Members of Maria Fischer’s Windermere and Furness School of Dancing will perform the enchanting story to audiences in Ulverston’s Coronation Hall at 7pm on Friday and Saturday.

A total of 180 dancers, aged from four to 18, have been rehearsing since February and these photographs were taken at their dress rehearsal on Saturday.

Miss Fischer said: “They are becoming over-the-top excited, the children, as you can imagine.

“They are so looking forward to it, and so are the older girls, because they’ve put a lot of hard work in.

“The soloists have really worked their socks off – they’ve been really dedicated and enthusiastic and been to every rehearsal.”

Lauren Durrell, 18, will play the lead character, Princess Aurora, and the soundtrack is by Tchaikovsky.

Miss Fischer said: “People can expect beautiful costumes, lovely music and hopefully some really lovely, impressive dance, because all the girls have worked really hard and the class if of a high standard.”
