Reviews and quotes

“A tremendous performance with inspirational dancing”
Kim Chitty, BBC Nottingham.

“The magic worked, EYB notched up another success” – Croydon Guardian.

“English Youth Ballet is a triumph” – Dance Expression.

“Janet Lewis’ English Youth Ballet has now been going for a decade, growing in popularity to such an extent that 8 productions are currently staged each year. The logistics behind such an enterprise are quite baffling – each show uses from 80 – 120 young dancers aged between 8 and 18 so it is not only the concept of providing opportunities for ballet students in the regions to dance in classical ballets but also the incredibly efficient organisation behind it all that deserves accolade’
Dance Europe magazine.

English Youth Ballet was the winner of the Stage Award for Special Achievement in Regional Theatre in 2006 and Janet Lewis, director, was honoured with an MBE in the New Years Honours list in 2008.
