  2. Pennsylvania's second digital programme has been available for the last couple of days. Again you could watch the four pieces in any order. I started with Christopher Wheeldon's Polyphonia. I really didn't take to the music at all but I thought the choreography was terrific and that Wheeldon made the most of the music. Next up was a solo excerpt from And so it is... by Dwight Rhoden which had a confusingly similar costume to those worn in Polyphonia. I enjoyed this sinuous solo. What a difference a year makes. I watched another company's streaming of Bal
  3. Not the ROH but don't talk to me about discrimination towards single ticket bookers...
  4. And Northern Ballet are at Sadler's Wells in June. I really like Dangerous Liaisons but I know it has been tweaked. The mixed programme is fab!
  5. I've just had a look at the faculty out of interest. As a non-dancer I can't comment on teaching standards but 2 of my all time favourite dancers are on the faculty!

  7. Hello 5678balletmom and welcome out of the long term lurking shadows!
  8. Hello Alice0702 and welcome out of the lurking shadows! I've added a couple of tags at the top of your thread. If you click on them you will be taken to links for older threads. One thing I do know our members suggest is looking at the list of graduate destinations. I can't comment on either school but living in Warrington would be cheaper than living in London, if costs are a consideration.

  17. Not that it's got anything to do with dance but my Mum took me (dragged me???) into our local Woolies at the age of 12 to get me some makeup (well I was probably nearer 13)!! Are any of her friends taking the same exam? Are they going to be wearing makeup. As a makeup obsessive I would recommend something very light (nothing like full stage makeup), possibly a tinted moisturiser or a sheer foundation, mascara and a lip gloss with possibly the tiniest smudge of eyeshadow on her lid.
  18. Hello Juliet and welcome to the Forum! I’ve added a couple of tags you can use for searches. There have been earlier discussions about accommodation for Central that may give some useful information.

  21. I've had an email from The Lowry this morning advertising Carlos Acosta appearing on 21-22 July with his show from 2010 "On Before". I'm not sure if the tickets are on general sale yet. It looks as though the Lowry seating plan is still showing socially distanced seating. https://thelowry.com/whats-on/carlos-acosta-on-before/?utm_campaign=352932_On-sale Fri 30 Apr 2021 - Paddy&utm_medium=email&utm_source=lowry_dotmailer&dm_i=5OV3,7KBO,11IZC5,VLKC,1 I assume more dates are to be announced.
