A cast of twinkle-toed dance students are perfecting their pirouettes and getting into character ready to present an adaptation of The Sleeping Beauty this weekend.

The Rosemary Lane School of Ballet & Theatre Dance will stage the iconic fairytale ballet at Stantonbury Theatre on Friday evening, with a further two performances on Saturday and a Sunday matinee.

Students of all ages and levels – from tiny tots in the pre-school classes to the dedicated advanced dancers – are preparing to bring the tale of true love reawakened to life.

Evil fairy Carabosse is furious when her daughter, Carabelle, is the only fairy in the kingdom to not receive an invitation to the christening of the newest member of the Royal Family, Baby Aurora.

When the big day arrives, Carabosse interrupts the graceful dancing of the Good Fairies to cast a wicked spell.

Expect stunning costumes, flocks of fairies and plenty of dancing.
