WHITNEY SCHOFIELD (article first published : 2005-07-23)

At the tender age of 13, promising ballerina Whitney Schofield was placed first in all the events she entered in her age category at the recent South African Society for Advanced Dancing Festival.

The SASAD Festival also presented her with the Jimmy Bolton Award for best classical dance and the Margaret Barbieri Trophy for the most outstanding classical dancer.

It is no surprise that Whitney should be headed for a future in ballet. Her grandmother is well-known dance teacher Kerry Barends and both her great-grandmother and her mother have been dancers.

This young Durban Girls’ College pupil who attends KZN Dance Centre has also performed in major dance productions working with the Fantastic Flying Fish Dance Company, such as Coppelia and The Nutcracker.
