  1. I think it's been going on for some years now, in one form or another, although obviously not in its present location. Personally, I'd prefer the privacy of a studio, or somewhere more hidden away, rather than having people potentially hanging over the banisters watching you, but perhaps that's just me.
  2. Wonder if she'll be front page on the Daily Telegraph again tomorrow? They seem to have a bit of a "thing" for her in the same way they used to for Darcey Bussell. Wish I'd known this was on - I'd have liked to have gone. Congrats to the GB team.
  3. And according to the DanceTabs review mentioned in today's Links, the videos of the livestream will be available for 3 months.
  4. I'm afraid I totally forgot to watch the first episode of this tonight, but for those of you who did, please discuss it here (and possibly avoid identifying the winner for a while, in case people are going to watch it on catchup). Tonight's category was the South Asian dance one.
  5. "Cast change for The Royal Ballet's Romeo and Juliet Saturday 27 April, 1.30pm Saturday 4 May, 7pm Our records show that you are due to attend a performance of Romeo and Juliet. We are contacting you to let you know that, due to injury, Reece Clarke is replaced by guest artist Timofej Andrijashenko as Romeo on Saturday 27 April and Saturday 4 May. If you have any questions please contact our Box Office team on +44 (0)20 7304 4000 (Monday–Saturday: 10am–8pm) who will be happy to assist you." Yes: who the heck is he? Hoping Clarke will at least be fit for his later scheduled performances

No explanation as to who the replacement is - I just spotted the cast change on the website.
  7. From this week's Links, a long discussion of the production by Jennifer Homans: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2019/04/22/akram-khan-remakes-giselle
  8. Welcome to the forum, Kate. I hope that's solved your problem.
  9. Thanks for the clarification, Dave. Yes, I know someone who's had a hell of a time renting out a property because she got taken in by a sob story. Trying to get the tenant out was a nightmare, especially as the council was advising the tenant on how to be as limpet-like as possible.
  10. Beats me. My understanding is that it now potentially leaves one party to the marriage without any say in the dissolution thereof, which is crazy. While this isn't a political matter per se now, divorce is of course a very sensitive subject for many people, so if we are going to discuss it please can we bear that in mind.

    Clients who suddenly decide, just before Easter, that actually, it'd be really good if you could get that piece you'd scheduled in for the week after to them before Easter so they can look at it over the break Also clients who've only just realized that it's Easter and dump loads of urgent work on you, and so on, and so forth. I'm actually quite glad there are no Royal Ballet/ENB etc. performances on this week, although I shall be annoyed if I have to miss the Ballet Association tonight.
  12. This feature came up on the Links page yesterday, I think it was. It has (for once) attracted quite a few useful and interesting BTL comments as well: https://www.theguardian.com/stage/2019/apr/15/merce-cunningham-dance-centenary-pupils-recall-teacher
  13. Blimey, bottom prices have gone up since I last actually booked a ticket! Thanks.
  14. A few tickets - admittedly in the upper price ranges - have appeared on the ROH website for this.
