A Dream Come True
I have just got into the London Children's Ballet! I was very VERY excited when I heard I had got into the company! It was a dream come true! We had the casting on the 7th of December and I was really looking forward to it although I wasn't feeling very well and I know I did not do my best, but I still did as much as I could that day. I hope I get a good part! I would really like to be little snow white, the jester or the snowflake soloist. I am very excited to see which part I get and cannot wait to start rehersals! Almost everyone I know is coming to watch the production of Snow White at the Peacock Theatre!!! I just cannot wait, as to dance on stage in front of a theatre full of people is all I have ever wanted to do ever since I was three years old.
The performance day is nearly here and we've started putting all the scenes together and trying on all our beautiful costumes. I really can't wait to get on the stage! I've always wanted to do this for my whole life and now it's really happening. LCB have made my dream come true!

Sixty children were chosen from over 500 young hopefuls to be part of the LCB’s 2014 season. Now they are working together, week in, week out, to create a stunning West End production of Nanny McPhee. In their own words, LCB’s young dancers share the highs and lows of this exciting, life-changing experience.
