  1. Hello Mum to a boy dancer and welcome to the forum!
  2. Greenwich Dance announces ArtsUnboxed, a new way to safely create and tour dance in 2021 This spring, Greenwich Dance will launch ArtsUnboxed, an innovative new way to safely create, produce and tour work in 2021.

  4. I appreciate that this has been mentioned by people before but I really object to the discrimination against people booking single tickets that is being applied to social distance seating arrangements in theatres.

The tickets had been booked in June and December 2019

  6. Re: Enrico CECCHETTI – The Film is OUT ! "BALLET'S SECRET CODE" A message from the Chairman of Société Auguste Vestris Many of you will recall – including of course those who contributed to the HellloAsso crowdfunding campaign - that in late 2014, VESTRIS launched a project, led by Prof. J.

  9. I meant to post earlier. I really enjoyed this Don Quixote!! I didn't quite get the set but it did give plenty of room for the dancers. I thought all the dancers sparkled and I really liked the costumes too. Thanks again Angela for keeping us up to date with streamings from Stuttgart.

  11. Hello Myrtle and welcome out of the lurking shadows. Sorry I can't help with the music ID but I'm sure someone will be able to.
