Kingston Guardian - June 10, 2010
A young ballet prodigy is ready to learn from the best after winning a place at one of the world’s top dance schools. Benji Pearson, a student at the Wimbledon Village School of Ballet, will take up a place at the Royal Ballet School. Benji - who only started taking ballet lessons last year - will begin at the school in Richmond Park in September.
The 11-year-old, who lives in Wolsey Close, Kingston, has already performed at the Royal Opera House and is set to appear with Russia’s Bolshoi Ballet this summer.
