Luke takes world of ballet by storm

Luke Wilson, Year 10, has been selected for a role with the English Youth Ballet following auditions in April attended by more than 300 entrants.  He will join the prestigious group for its production of Swan Lake later this month.  Luke will feature in the show at Southampton for three performances from September 21 to 22 and will play the role of a Russian Stagehand and a Hungarian Dancer.  He will dance alongside EYB’s stunning international principal artists in the professional production.

He said, “I started dancing when I was six years old because my friend invited me to start doing it.  I am looking forward to the Swan Lake rehearsals and then the performances at the end.  When I am older I would either like to be a performer or a dance teacher.”

Everyone at Haslingden High School wishes you all the very best Luke!
