  1. I'm quite surprised, TBH that ENB are touring Manon again. When it toured some years ago it absolutely bombed (goodness only knows why). So much so (it was an Autumn tour in the days when the company used to do Spring & Autumn UK tours) that dates for the following Spring were cancelled before the tickets even went on sale. In my, sad, experience audiences in the North are not hugely adventurous and if it is something that is not one of the Tchaikowsky big 3, Coppelia or Romeo and Juliet or a Russian company then it is not likely to sell well.

    I was always under the impression that dancers dance because they need/want to and that money was almost secondary. I assume this is why there are so many flourishing amateur companies...

    A very great read, the basis of which could be life's mantra. Thanks for the link PDQ.

    How dreadfully cynical. Most people work hard for many years no matter what their sphere of life. I’ve met many people over the years who have realised sooner or later that the path they chose at one or more points in their life has become a path they have no longer wanted to follow and have changed their direction. I say good on them for having the courage of their convictions to change path.

    Aretha Franklin RIP

    Just for the boys...😉

    I may have mis-remembered but have RAD run some boys only workshops? I've got in the back of my mind that Iain Mackay, in his guise as Project B ambassador may have been involved. As Anna says in her signature "google" has been my friend and I have remembered correctly! Not sure if it will be suitable but worth looking at: https://www.royalacademyofdance.org/learn-to-dance/project-b/about-project-b

    Aretha Franklin RIP

    I've heard the very sad news that Aretha Franklin has passed away at the age of 76. She was a true star with boundless talent; her singing just sent shivers down my spine. RIP the Queen of Soul.

    Hello Domino, I've added the tag "makeup" to your thread. If you click on that a number of threads come up that may have useful advice not only for now but the future. Does the tutu indicate a character eg Kitri or Aurora or Odette? That could influence how you apply the eye shadows/liner and even lip colour. Could her teacher offer you any advice?
