Abigail Crew is set to take the stage next month in the latest production from the English Youth Ballet.

Marlwood Student Abigail Crew, who has trained at the Sharon Phillips School of Dancing since she was two and a half years old, was casted for the double bill of Nutcracker Suite and Ballet Etudes, having proven herself over more than 150 other hopefuls in a series of auditions.

Having shown herself in what the company directors have said was an ‘electric’ series of auditions, Abigail, has joined the rest of the company at Bishop Wadsworth School for the first weekend of 10 days of intensive rehearsals to make sure the performance is perfect.

The shows themselves, a matinee and two evening shows, will take place at Salisbury City Hall on April 21st and 22nd.

We have also been told today that Abigail has been unconditionally accepted at Scotland Ballet West.

Well done Abigail – we are very proud of you!
