Abbie Aitken 8J is an incredibly keen ballet dancer, practising her craft daily. Last week, she had the amazing experience of performing The Nutcracker with the Russian Ballet at Lagan Valley in Lisburn.
This fantastic event followed a lot of hard work and training with the Russian ballet as part of Ballet without Borders and other young dancers from across Northern Ireland. In fact, Abbie was one of a small number selected to take part in this event from across the country: very well done!
This is actually the second year that Abbie has been selected to take part in a performance alongside the Russian ballet, as last year she performed in their production of Swan Lake!
Very well done Abbie, and we hope that your dance career continues to flourish!
