Inspiration through dance…
London Children’s Ballet (LCB) was founded in 1994 to give talented young dancers age 9-14 (boys 9-16) a unique opportunity to perform as part of a professional ballet production. The 6-month audition to performance experience is free and the company of 55 is an exuberant and mixed bunch united by their passion for dance. LCB stands apart from other dance companies as the audition judges look for children who, regardless of physique, have that special star quality that makes a dancer beautiful to watch. LCB children make lasting friendships outside their normal orbit and learn for life the reward of persistence and hard work.
LCB meets on Sunday afternoons from January through April, so our dancers stay in their academic schools. By the time final auditions for dance schools take place at age 16, they have matured and leave LCB with a realistic idea of their potential. They have also tested their commitment to dance and have learned about other creative options in the wider world of stagecraft and theatre.
