  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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

  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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.

  9. A very full evening from 6 choreographers featuring mostly elder dancers on until Tuesday 27thh at Sadlers Wells. Must commend the Alumni of the National Youth Dance Company. Here are some pictures from the rehearsal.

  10. An extract from the current programme at Sadlers Wells on until Saturday. Most of the solos and duets were poorly lit. So apologies for the low quality of some of the pictures. Some pictures from the rehearsal of Gypsy Mixture. The company in Gypsy Mixture Nicholas Bodych The company in Gypsy Mixture More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  11. Colourful and vibrant show at the Peacock Theatre until 2nd July. Pictures from extracts of the show. Members of the company in Taj Express Tanvi Patel and members of the company in Taj Express Members of the company in Taj Express More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  12. A hectic 70 minutes without a stop. On tonight and tomorrow at Sadlers Wells. Pictures from the rehearsal. Members of the company in Rain Members of the company in Rain Members of the company More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  13. Quite agree, My wife's comment on coming home - have just enjoyed a refresshing cup on homecoming from Sadlers Wells - and a Ballet performance by the Scottish Ballet - my oh my, are they fit ! The first ballet was intense, the second insect-like redolent of cicadas, or the like, and both extremely well rehearsed and perfectly 'together' - quite an achievement. The music was noisome, and repetitive and some of the detail a mite too lengthy, but the ideas were fully worked out, if obscure, and no-one could fault the dancers for their work and presentation... a more wealthy company couldn't have done better in executing what was required of the company.

  14. A very full evening for once and full of variety as Akram Khan reacts to various characters especially a little boy. What stamina and creativity. Akram Khan in Desh Akram Khan in Desh Akram Khan in Desh More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
  15. I was also at the Ghost Dances Photocall. The lighting left a lot to be desired. Here are a couple of my pictures. Ghost Dancers with Adam Park Hannah Rudd and Luke Ahmet More pictures on www.johnrossballetgallery.co.uk
