Sacha Barber

Year 7's hugely talented Sacha Barber has won a place to the elite Royal Ballet after attending the International Summer School at White Lodge in Richmond last month.

Sacha was a Junior Associate at the Royal Ballet and was trained at Bede's by Head of Dance, Louise Mizon.

He has already performed at the Royal Opera House in Swan Lake, Prince of the Pagodas and Matthew Wheeldon's new Ballet, A Winter's Tale.

Sacha excelled in the Summer School, demonstrating his outstanding technique and creativity which resulted in the Director of Dance, Jay Jolley, offering him the opportunity to study with the highly prestigious Royal Ballet as a full time pupil of White Lodge from September 2014.

Well done Sacha - and best of luck!
