This unique collaboration between English National Ballet and English National Ballet School is choreographed by Ruth Brill and performed by students of English National Ballet School. Since its creation in 2012, over 320,000 people have enjoyed the My First Ballet series. 

With a narrator to help the young audience follow the story, and a shortened version of Prokofiev’s ravishing score, this is the perfect introduction to the magic of ballet, and a fantastic family day out.
