AN up-and-coming ballet dancer from Southwick, who attends the Lancing Musical Theatre School, has been selected to appear in an English Youth Ballet production.

Ethan Taylor, 12, has seen his dreams come true as he was selected from more than 200 young hopefuls.

He will appear in a comic adaptation of Coppélia at the Hawth Theatre in Crawley on October 24 and 25.

The youngsters in the cast will dance alongside EYB’s international principal artists in a professional production.

They will gain an insight into what life is like as a professional ballet dancer.

Principal ballerina Amy Drew said: “Ethan is so lucky – I wish there had been something like EYB when I was training!”

Ethan attends The Sir Robert Woodard Academy in Lancing.
