Spring 2012 sees the unveiling of My First... a series of ballets bringing children their first taste of the magical world of ballet

ENB2 is a new touring company featuring graduating dancers of outstanding potential from English National Ballet School in performances produced by English National Ballet, bringing ballet to young audiences.

The first ballet to be adapted in this way will be My First Sleeping Beauty. The show will be performed by the third year students from English National Ballet School in their first professional tour, so it will be a "first" for both audiences and performers.
