English National Ballet presents My First Sleeping Beauty

Introduce your children to the magical world of ballet at English National Ballet's My First Sleeping Beauty.

This spring English National Ballet launches the My First… series of ballets for children, beginning with My First Sleeping Beauty.

Created by award-winning choreographer Matthew Hart and performed by third year students from the English National Ballet School, the show is designed with young attention spans in mind.

The dancers will wear the sumptuous costumes from the full adult production, but the story and choreography will be more approachable and fun.

Children are welcome to dress up as a ballerina, an evil fairy or a prince, and they're encouraged to boo, cheer, laugh and even try some ballet moves for themselves.

Tchaikovsky's musical score includes the tune made famous as Once upon a Dream in Disney's version of Sleeping Beauty.
