  1. Harold King founder of London City Ballet sadly passed today
  2. Sad for the children he abused and their families
  3. Pleading guilty does not make him 33% less guilty , the law is an ass to abuse children is a disgrace.
  4. What is the difference, does it make him less guilty i feel sorry for his family
  5. Stephen Beagley has been found guilty of abusing young girls and awaiting sentencing Daily Mail today
  6. Would it have been different if the cellist had been a woman or is it the subject that reminds you of abuse, I just saw a very clever short piece of choreography
  7. But running a school is different , as just coaching one off I’m sure she has good knowledge of the roles she performed but running a school needs someone wth experience . Do we know if she is going to run her company alongside her commitment to ENBS big ask if so as being DOD at ENBS is a full time job
  8. It’s Leticia Dias and Teo Dubreuil
  9. In Paquita there is a releve between the right and left double tours , they are not consecutive. I agree Ci Cao was a great dancer
  10. To the parents and students
  11. It has been announced thar Carlos Valcárcel Director of Dance at ENBS has resigned
  12. I don’t know but the Shakespeare and the Harlequin was were you could meet the dancers from SWRB , as a fan I did meet David Ashmole, Alain Dubreuil and Carl Myers such nice fellows . David was taken far too early ,Carl I was told emigrated to NZ ,Alain i believe coaches and travels lot
  13. A very nostalgic evening with superb performances a fitting send off for David. it was nice to see in the audience some of the original cast , Anita Landa , Samira Saidi (I agree with two pigeons a stunning lady) Alain Dubreuil,Steven Wicks . the company had a farewell party at the Shakespeare the pub behind the theatre before travelling back to Brum
  14. He has enough talent in the company , after yesterday’s showing
  15. What a pleasure to see a young fresh cast dancing R&J. Sullivan and Sambe so believable in the lead roles, very impressive debuts and thoroughly enjoyed Teo Dubreuil’s debut as Benvolio, a future Romeo I hope! It would have been good to see a younger dancer dance Tybalt, after all those boys should all be of the same generation? Bravo to all!
  16. Ok then how can we find out who got US places this year . Without treading on toes .and being inappropriate on the forum
  17. Because because it was disappointing, I’m afraid that this pairing does not really work. In act 1 Matthew postured a lot but in act 3 in white tights his poor feet and lack of leg line were cruelly exposed , Lauren I feel came out of it better . Early days let’s see other performances,perhaps coaching to put them in the right direction
  18. So good to see more steaming this year . Some lovely candidates ,Monique Loudiere is an inspirational coach always positive with very few words she drives the contestants to achieve more. the commentators Jason and Naomi are so dull and repetitive especially Naomi ,if you have nothing to say just keep quiet and don’t repeat yourself (sorry but her delivery and voice irritates me ) yes we know that Elizabeth Platel is French and has the correct terminology for steps but don’t go on and on about it , a lame duck is not a step in France but how many studentsin UK or US would know tour piqué 😃
  19. ENBS are again doing their performance at the Wimbledon Theatre on the 4th and 5th of July. It is the 25th anniversary of the school I hear many alumni will be there
  20. My first was Etudes danced by the London's Festival Ballet the principal dancers were John Gilpin ,Toni Lander and Flemming Flindt ,I was hooked,I loved that company always a joy to watch.
  21. What a lovely company and congratulations to Christopher Hampson ,I saw Thursday nightI thought the company danced so well Juliet Mercutio Tybalt and the Capulet couple were so good but I felt no connection to Romeo ,a fine dancer but I wanted more passion.Come back soon Scottish Ballet and bring us some Peter Darrel"s lovely ballets
