The Athens Children's Ballet (ACB) presents the classical ballet «Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs», choreographed by the acclaimed British choreographer Olivia Pickford. The ballet is a unique performance of the beloved fairytale that will take you and your family on a magical journey.
75 talented dancers from all over Greece, aged 9 to 21 years old, highlight the magic of ballet in 4 unique performances that will take place at the Theatre at ACS Athens in Chalandri, on Saturday, November 30 and Sunday December 1, 2013.
A few words about Athens Children’s Ballet and its work:
Christina Roka, a graduate of London’s Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), is the founder and artistic director of ACB; Lynn Wallis, RAD’s artistic director, is the honorary president and Olivia Pickford the choreographer.
More than 300 dancers from all over Greece participated in the auditions which led to the 75 talented young girls and boys who form ACB’s ballet team.
Following a pioneering educational dance program which is implemented in Greece for the first time, and under Olivia’s guidance, the 75 dancers have elevated their talent by working very hard for six months. During that time they proved that they have the discipline, the consistency, the endurance but also the abilities to cope with the strict program and the demands of a professional show.
They are committed to proving this to all of you by dancing with immense passion on the grand stage of the Theatre at ACS Athens; and this will only be the beginning! The Athens Children’s Ballet, apart from the opportunity it offers to the dancers through their participation in a professional show and their collaboration with a distinguished team of choreographers and educators, it also gives them the opportunity to claim two scholarships for training in Britain’s best dance summer schools such as the Royal Ballet School, the Elmhurst School of Dance, Bird College and the Royal Academy of Dance.
ACB’s dancers deserve your warmest and loudest applause!
