  1. I'm sorry but I absolutely disagree with you. The dancers may be in a public facing profession but they are still entitled to a private life. If they themselves have not put something on social media then there is no official reason to confirm (or not) their circumstances. The company is not obliged to tell us anything. I've bought programmes for lots of companies over the years where the sum total of the biography is when they joined the company and what roles they do. That is surely all we need to know.
  2. Yes, I was one of them Bruce (I think thanks to you reporting their spring season here) and I was so excited when I picked up the email before! I really fell in love with this company!
  3. BIRMINGHAM ROYAL BALLET Birmingham Royal Ballet and Birmingham Repertory Theatre announce ‘Christmas is not cancelled’ as adapted version of The Nutcracker goes on sale Following last week’s sold-out performances of Lazuli Sky, Birmingham Royal Ballet and Birmingham Repertory Theatre are excited to announce a specially adapted production of the classic Christmas fairytale The Nutcracker, which will run at The REP from 14 – 22 December 2020. Tickets, from £20, are on general sale from tomorrow 30 October at birmingham-rep.
  4. Northern Ballet open with a concert performance of Dangerous Liaisons in Leeds tonight. (I think it's 10 years since it was last revived.) This afternoon they have released some rehearsal footage (prior to World Ballet Day) of Joseph Taylor and Antoinette Brooks-Daw performing, IIRC, the duet between Valmont and Tourvel.
  5. Hello DanceMum03 and welcome to the Forum!
  6. I I've seen that written down somewhere Lizbie. The nearest I can come to what I have read is in this government page: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/local-covid-alert-levels-what-you-need-to-know

  8. I'm so glad for you Glowlight. When I went to Aston Hall in Birmingham on 20th September it did me the world of good. I discovered a new place and saw a fabulous exhibition of costumes and felt normal! I'm glad I've got a dog to make sure I keep walking (but I'm not looking forward to it today as it is currently lashing down!).
  9. English National Ballet receives generous grant from Government’s £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund English National Ballet is delighted to announce that we have been awarded a grant of £3 million through the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund, announced today.

  11. I've just picked this up via Facebook if anyone is within easy reach of Darlington: https://www.darlingtonhippodrome.co.uk/whats-on/details?id=123002AQSPPPRQMVSGCGMSKNQMGSMSSPH&fbclid=IwAR0ITLy40JCLGBO0n76th3udHGDRuajGeJWeVUWf94P3dO6NXvFiJFVmAEM
  12. Oh I shall enjoy watching that later. Not only an interesting topic but Kenneth Tharp whom I used to love as a dancer.
  13. Unless things have changed accounts for FY ending 31 March 2020 don't have to be filed with the charity commission until the end of January 2021. I don't know about Companies House).
  14. I've watched the trailer - it looks as though it will be well worth watching.

  16. Can you watch the IPlayer? I thought it was geo-blocked. It's good if you can.
  17. Northern Ballet have recently advertised that it was still available via the iPlayer on their social media channels and that it is being re-shown on BBC4 (it was shown earlier in the year). I've realised that some items on the iPlayer are available for a lot longer than others but is it worth the effort to search them out?

  19. I'm set up on the test and trace app although so far I have only been to one place where I have had to check in. When I went there on Wednesday at about 2pm and checked in the app told me that I would be logged in there either till midnight or till I checked in elsewhere (whichever was sooner). Would I still be contacted if someone checked in at 6pm when I had left over 3 hours earlier? I don't have to check in when I go to the supermarket or the corner shop (just about the only other places I am going to).
