In January, the pair were chosen to be part of the 100-strong cast of EYB’s production of Cinderella in Hollywood.

They were selected in hugely competitive auditions.

The young cast are currently experiencing the life of a professional dancer in rehearsals.

EYB principal Lindsey Fraser will be starring as Cinderella in the production.

Before joining EYB she danced with the Vienna Festival Ballet.

She said: “I wish I had danced with EYB when I was young. The dancers learn so much about performance skills and the artistry of ballet.

“I love working as a principal dancer with EYB because I get to dance fantastic roles and teach and watch the young dancer’s progress.

“The sets and costumes in the production are superb and the whole experience is one the young dancers (and the audiences) will never forget!”

Set in the glamorous era of 1950s Hollywood movies, the lavish production draws its inspiration from film star Grace Kelly who met Prince Rainier of Monaco at a press party and later married him.

Cinderella is a seamstress on a film set and the Fairy Godmother is her late mother - a former movie star of the 1930s.

Her wicked sisters are Hollywood starlets competing with each other for starring film roles. The Prince meets Cinderella at the press party but at midnight she flees from the scene leaving a sparkly silver pointe-shoe as the only clue to her identity.
