A schoolboy is pirouetting his way towards his dream after being awarded a place at one of the world’s greatest ballet schools.

Louis Scrivener, 11, a pupil at Sherborne House School in Chandler’s Ford , has become one of just 24 pupils selected for the Royal Ballet School in September.

Louis first developed a love for ballet at just five years old after watching Swan Lake and Romeo and Juliet with his family one Christmas. In January 2006, his mother enrolled him at the Sally Johnson Academy of Dance where he learned ballet, tap, modern and jazz dance.

A Royal Ballet associate, Louis landed his first role in their production of Sleeping Beauty in 2011 and will join fellow students in The Nutcracker at The Royal Opera House later this year. He has also performed with Sally Johnson Academy of Dance in Dance Proms at The Royal Albert Hall and took first place at the All England Dance National Finals.
