Cinderella Ballet Show
Tuesday 13th June 2017
In June, 12 students from Year 1, 3 and 6 took performed in the ballet Cinderella with professional dancers from the Cairo Opera Ballet Company. Reception and Years 1 to 3 all came together to watch the spectacular performance together with teachers, parents, relatives and friends of Malvern. The brightly coloured costumes looked stunning against the black backdrop and students put on an impressive ballet show.
It was fantastic to see the students all come together after two terms of rehearsals as part of the Co-Curricular activities programme. Ballet is a form of dancing which may tell a story, express a mood, or just reflect a piece of music. It is not as easy as it looks and you will be surprised to know that it takes both physical and mental strength to be a ballerina. Students need to learn to be flexible, carefully follow instructions. They need to have the ability to learn quickly, listen carefully, concentrate and work well in a team. It is clear from watching the show that these 12 students had developed some of these skills and they should all be very proud of themselves for their achievements.
