  1. Sounds fantastic Jan, wish I could have gone to a show but my mum has had surgery so.....thanks for the report.👍🏽
  2. I can't actually remember walking out on a dance performance, although I've been very tempted - & really just worried that I would start laughing (Medusa springs to mind), which would not be nice. But I remember - being stuck in the middle of a row, during a performance of Tristan & Isolde. It was truly boring! And because I was hemmed in, and also because I'd been given the ticket by an orchestra member, I remained. And slept 😴 Did I mention how boring it was, not to mention long....🙄🙄🙄
  3. I am so excited and pleased for Claire Calvert. She is such a lovely ballerina and an accomplished interpreter in every role. Her beautiful legs, arms and particularly her gorgeous feet are perfect for this role. I've got a feeling that this performance is going to be such a great success that KOH will be sorry he didn't give her a couple more shows. Well deserved - and about time. It would be great to start a thread (if it hasn't already been done) on particular dancers who despite always giving amazing performances either don't get promoted or and therefore don't get to dance certain roles. Romany Pajdak immediately springs to mind.....🙏🏽
  4. I loved June Highwood, such a beautiful dancer with legs and feet to die for. I do think she was a bit underrated....as it's us old die hard SWRB fans who remember her I think...
  5. Wow thank you Jan. What a really interesting article. I loved Elisha, a beautiful ballerina - and those feet! David Bintley was such a great director/ choreographer because he always chose the perfect dancers!
  6. Yes everyone can see the condition of her shoes, I was not aware that they were a cause for injury though, or that she was injured often....?
  7. What a year..... RIP 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
  8. A very beautiful woman and a ballerina I wish I'd seen. RIP 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
  9. Just wonderful 🙏🏽
  10. Although I find it extraordinary that neither the RB or ENB have posted an obituary to this very special ballerina....or have I missed it???
  11. A beautiful romantic ballerina. The last of her era. Such a huge inspiration to Italian dancers. RIP 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
