Ranvitha’s Dance Performance with the National Youth Ballet

Ranvitha, Y8, was selected by The National Youth Ballet of Great Britain to join the cast in their 30th Anniversary production, Time in Motion.

Ranvitha has spent the second half of August rehearsing at the Elmhurst Ballet School in Birmingham before she performed at the Crescent Theatre, Birmingham and Sadler’s Wells in London. She had a great time working with eminent dancers and choreographers.

Time in Motion featured seven short ballets linked together, with traditional and contemporary works set to music by composers such as Saint-Saens, Delibes and Britten. The performances were said to be absolutely amazing!
