Young ballet dancers to present Thumbelina

THE KZN Midlands Youth Ballet Company’s inaugural ballet production, Thumbelina, will be staged at the Hilton College Theatre on July 8 and 9.

The show, choreographed by Robin van Wyk, artistic director of the Cape Town City Ballet (CTCB), will feature talented local dancers and members of the CTCB.

Seventy-one dancers were chosen to perform during auditions held in Pietermaritzburg earlier this year.

Joanne Anderson, spokesperson for the KZN Midlands Youth Ballet Company said: “This is an enormous honour and privilege for these young dancers … Robin van Wyk, who is directing the production, is hoping that the Pietermaritzburg public will show their appreciation for this beautiful art form and support the KMYBC.”

There will be four performances of Thumbelina at 2.30 pm and 6 pm on July 8 and 9. Tickets are R100 (R80 for pensioners) at http://www.hiltontheatre.co.za, 033 383 0126 or theatre@hiltoncollege.com

The KZN Midlands Youth Ballet and principals from the Cape Town City Ballet will present Thumbelina in the Hilton College Theatre.
