My First Ballet 2017

Activities to support My First Ballet: Swan Lake
and resources about going to the ballet or theatre.

English National Ballet Swan Lake

Swan Lake is the latest of the classics to be recreated for young children in the My First Ballet series, the unique collaboration between English National Ballet and English National Ballet School. 

The performances are specially created to make classical ballet accessible and enjoyable to children from the age of three upwards. Following on the success of Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Coppélia, My First Ballet: Swan Lake is created by English National Ballet’s Associate Artist George Williamson and performed by second year students from English National Ballet School. 

With a narrator to help the young audience follow the story, and Tchaikovsky’s wonderful music, this is the perfect way to introduce children to classical ballet. 

★★★★ “It is a clever, instructive and entertaining device” 

Daily Express on My First Ballet: Sleeping Beauty

“My First Cinderella achieves exactly what it sets out to do, introducing them [children] to an art form without short changing older viewers” 

The Times on My First Ballet: Cinderella
