All the soloist and corps de ballet roles will be performed by 100 of the best dancers from Oxfordshire and beyond.Â Aoife, whoÂ attends the Abbey School in Reading and is training at Julia Rose Academy of Dance, said: “I started dancing lessons because I was always dancing around the house. I am really looking forward to seeing the principals dancing and I can’t wait for the costumes.Â When I am older I would like to be a prima ballerina with the Royal Ballet.”
