  1. From my work experience if a scheme to leave on a voluntary basis was on offer it was on offer to everyone. Perhaps she decided the time is right with the offer being on. It may not be anything more than that. https://www.instagram.com/p/CIJN1sWgdGg/

  4. Wow!!! How luck you are to have spotted that Quintus!
  5. As a ballet-watcher rather than a member of a dancing family it is surely important to train the students to an all round employable standard rather than just focus on them trying to get in to one company? I don't know how many students successfully graduate from the well-known upper schools in the UK (well the ones I am familiar with from reading biographies - Central, Elmhurst, ENBS, RBS, RCS) but there are 5 bigger companies in the UK (BRB, ENB, NB, RB, Scottish) and if each of them has, for example, 5 vacancies a year then a number of students are bound for disappointment which
  6. I've watched the danced sections of BRB at 30 several times now (well a gazillion times for End of Time!) and I have found it a really satisfying watch. I think that despite the duet being based on the very depressing On the Beach, Yijing and Brandon bring a feeling of hope to the piece as well as dancing it sublimely. They really seem to spark off each other too. I have continued to be impressed by Tzu Chao Chou's sensuous interpretation of Liebestod. Majismo is fun and so beautifully danced by the four couples. Momoko and Matthias give us a lovely remind

  11. I know I wasn't going but that is dreadfully sad for all of us. I wonder if the Rep performances in Birmingham will be able to go ahead (opening on 14th December). How does this bode for RB and ENB?
