Five talented dancers, aged 12 to 19, demonstrated how they warmed up prior to dancing and explained the terminology behind each movement.

Zuzia Kurzepa, 12, then showed the audience how a ballerina gets her feet prepared to wear pointe shoes before others performed a scene from the show.

The ballet will be performed tonight (Friday) at 7.30pm and tomorrow at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.
