Crystal Viljoen, a Grade 7 pupil at Laddsworth Primary School was recently offered a position with the newly established KZNMYBC (KwaZulu-Natal Midlands Youth Ballet Company). Crystal is currently studying her Checchetti Intermediate syllabus with Mrs Julia Powell.
Last year Crystal received the Mignon Furman (Founder of the American Academy of Ballet) Award, which is a scholarship to attend the programme in New York (in 2020). Due to the current worldwide pandemic, she cannot attend the Ballet Summer Intensive in New York.
Laddsworth is extremely proud of Crystals achievements.
