  1. BRB bubble 2 will be available to view in January though!
  2. Hi what colour are the intermezzo warm up boots please?
  3. Watching the first programme of the new series, it has been announced that the winner will be commissioned to create a portrait of Carlos Acosta to be displayed in the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.
  4. Thank you Jan those make interesting reading.
  5. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of this company? Happy to receive PMs. thank you
  6. From our experience of ‘live’ auditions, from associates to companies, quick decisions are made in those situations too as to who is of interest and who not and candidates can be ‘dismissed’ and given very little/no attention after just a few minutes. At least via zoom/video submission you are blissfully unaware! It’s not ideal I know but I’m sure they will see what they need to see in order to make their decision which is going to be very largely based on physical attributes and facility. (And that’s a whole new or rather age old debate...)
  7. BRB have announced on their Facebook page that a few more tickets have been released for the performances at the Rep. ‘We are delighted to announce that we are able to put a limited number of additional seats on sale for our upcoming performances of Lazuli Sky. Booking will be available online only at https://birmingham-rep.co.uk from 9am on Wednesday 2 September for performances at Birmingham Repertory Theatre on 22, 23 and 24 October.‘

  9. https://www.brb.org.uk/whats-on/event/outdoor-dance-displays A wealthier permitting, free outdoor event from BRB and Birmingham based South Asian dance company Sampad. From the above link: Audiences can enjoy the rare opportunity of watching Birmingham Royal Ballet’s professional dancers in their daily ballet class accompanied by Company pianist Ross Williams; daily class is essential for every dancer to improve technique, prevent injury and be performance ready. They will then be treated to two solos by Birmingham Royal Ballet’s professional dancers, The Dying
  10. Apologies Jan but as parent of an Elmhurst graduate I can confidently state they were not seen. Obviously the pandemic impacted upon the opportunity to be seen but we heard about the RBS contracts being awarded quite a while before lockdown. The annual apprenticeship was also not awarded this year.
  11. This is correct and just as it should be but surely the Elmhurst graduates could have at least been seen?
  12. From the BBC website, filmed prior to social distancing. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/entertainment-arts-53385004
  13. Interested in petite Yumiko if anyone is selling.
  14. Mr Bintley was a frequent visitor to school - he attended summer shows, graduate showcases, Gala evenings, appraisals, choreography, solos and other ‘friends’ events (often as an adjudicator) and prize giving ceremonies as well as being very actively involved in working with the students on performance pieces. This continued beyond his retirement from BRB. Since his announcement as new AD of BRB over a year ago, Mr Acosta has been into school twice - once to last year’s summer show gala evening and once to an event for the Patron HRH The Duchess of Cornwall.
