  1. Congratulations to all the Winners and Nominees, well deserved. I missed you all.
  2. And so say all of us. Happy New Year. Remember the guy who started all this.
  3. I was also at the rehearsal for Amore or better known as Francesca da Rimini with the wonderful Svetlana Zakharova as Francesca. Hope you enjoy the pictures as it is possibly my last ballet call. My legs are letting me down and it has become a struggle to mount all the stairs from Ealing to the venues. So thank you to all my balletco friends and enjoy your Ballet watching.

  4. Only the third part of the show was performed at yesterday's rehearsal at the Sadlers Wells. Dark as usual. Here are some pictures from the hard working company. The company in Bayadere - The Ninth Life Jack Thomson, Carmine De Amicis and Andre Kamienski More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  5. Not exactly Dance but as it is part of Sadlers Wells at the Peacock Theatre this amusing and acrobatic diversion could brighten up your autumn evening. Until 21st October. Some extracts from the current show Saloon, a cowboy theme. The company in Saloon Justine Methe Crozat The company in Saloon More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  6. The long awaited Acosta Danza Company are at Sadlers Wells until Saturday 30th September but if you do not have a ticket hope for returns. Quite a mixture, Watch out for Mario Sergei Elias, I called him mini Carlos, watch him go far. If you are expecting some Cuban tunes they are not there. The music is fairly percussive. The Twelve is very clever and well rehearsed. Here are some pictures from the rehearsal. Alejandro Silva and Carlos Luis Blanco in El cruce sobre el Niagara Mario Sergio Elias in Belles Lettres Marta Ortega and Carlos Acosta in Mermaid More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  7. Three short extracts from a dark and gloomy photocall of Hofesh Shechter's Grand Finale. On until Saturday at the Sadlers Wells Theatre. The Company in Grand Finale Members of the company Members of the company in Grand Finale More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  8. Oklahoma! at the Proms

    What a wonderful show, and the stamina. Did anyone see both performances. Robbie Fairchild was naturally smooth and would have been a great example to the other men. Marcus Brigstock was a revelation and well done to him. May try and see it again if I can get 3 and a half hours free.
  9. And some more from my camera. Sadly these set up shots lack the movement and atmosphere of a run. Viktoria Tereshkina - Nikiya and Kimin Kim - Solor Kimin Kim - Solor and Viktoria Tereshkina - Nikiya More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  10. A very short extract from Paquita. Here are some of my pictures. Viktoria Tereshkina and Vladimir Shklyarov with Artists of the Mariinsky Ballet Viktoria Tereshkina and Vladimir Shklyarov More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk

  13. Tanguera has returned to the Sadlers Wells Theatre until the 6th August. Sadly over lit with too much red and purple but the dancing excellent by the whole company. Just the Cabaret scene with musicians and dancers with star tango singer Marinella. Story of a French girl arriving in Buenos Aires and her discovery of life in the clubs. Danced by Melody Celatti as Giselle. Tanguera The company in the Cabaret scene Members of the company in Tanguera More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  14. Something different at Sadlers Wells, Dorrance Dance a combination of Tap dancing and some very clever electronic tap boards. Some pictures from the rehearsal. The company in ETM: Double Down Michelle Dorrance on the percussive electronic tap boards Ephrat "Bounce" Asherie and members of the company More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  15. A visually interesting evening by the Alexander Whitley Dance Company. Only for two nights at the Sadlers Wells Theatre - tonight is the second and last chance to see this bright and cheerful performance. Puzzling why it is called 8 minutes as it is 70 minutes long. Feast yourself on the colours from yesterday's rehearsal.
