Students backstage at the nutcracker

Students perform in The Nutcracker alongside The Royal Ballet

Our students were only able to perform with The Royal Ballet in a few of their performances of The Nutcracker this year due to tier changes in London.

However, our students worked very hard in rehearsals and did experience some of the magic of being on stage at the Royal Opera House at Christmas time.

White Lodge student, Emma said: ‘The Opera House has been doing a lot to keep everybody safe and make sure no one gets ill’.

She followed on to say: ‘It feels really amazing because it is not every day that you get to be with the dancers that you aspire to be like’.

You can watch our Year 8 and 9 students in The Nutcracker rehearsals and talking about their experience on our YouTube channel.
