  1. Pink tights under leotard, black ones over. I always think that black ones under look really weird! Mine are black stirrup tights so they go over my pink shoes to make sure they don’t break up the line of my leg.
  2. Please could you send me photos of the yumiko? Does it fit similar to a size small in Capezio or Bloch?
  3. Every time I’ve seen Beatriz dance, up until now only in soloist type roles, she’s always drawn my eye. So I was really desperate to see her dance Juliet and I’m so glad I did. Her innocence, overwhelming love for Romeo and desperation were so incredibly portrayed. She grew from childish and shy to determined. Her artistry was beautiful and Hirano supported her wonderfully. I’ve never really watched him properly but tonight I really enjoyed his interpretation of Romeo and felt his growth as he matured as he met Juliet, who he supported wonderfully with beautiful partnering. It was a stunning performance.
  4. Is the view not great? It says the view is restricted by the pillar, is it that bad?
  5. View from Stalls Circle C 22, is it ok for someone short??
  6. Sorry I thought there was only one, 7:30pm
  7. Does anyone have a spare ticket for sale for the Royal Ballet Romeo & Juliet on the 13th May? Thanks!
  8. Could I see photos of the warm up suit and leotards please?
  9. I’m still interested so if that changes please PM me!
  10. I’m interested in these, what’s the sizing like compared to Capezio or Bloch?
  11. Made my train at Waterloo in 13 minutes! Onto my thoughts about the ballet. Les Patineurs was pretty, felt festive and nicely upbeat. The dancing was really good, but nothing really stood out to me other than the blue boy? I was distracted by the lady seated in front of me (I was standing) who had the most perfectly styled hair but such a strong amount of hairspray and perfume I started to get a headache. Lovely ROH staff helped me move to a different spare standing place for the remainder of the ballets. Winter Dreams. I don’t believe I’ve been that bored in a ballet before. Maybe I was tired? The dancing was beautiful, Naghdi always draws my eye she makes everything look effortless. But the ballet just felt flat with repetitive music, a lot of distressed walking and holding on to people. When Muntagirov leapt it was as always stunning, I just wish there was more choreography to show some contrast. The whole piece felt so bitty, from one painful couple to the next. I love Russian plays, but I’m not sure they translate well to dance... The Concert was a delight. Funny and light it flew by. Maybe not as sharp as I’d liked it to have been but I laughed a lot and the characterisation was brilliant. Overall I enjoyed the evening but with the exception of The Concert definitely wouldn’t be rushing back to book anything any time soon.
  12. I was just wondering if anyone else had encountered this kind of pain, mostly when on Demi pointe or during petite allegro? It’s in both feet across all the toes in the joints before they meet the ball of the foot and goes between an ache and a sharp pain? I spoke to a dr and they seemed unconcerned as at the time it coincided with general joint aches and a change in the cold weather. As it’s persisting (the other aches have faded away) before I go and bother my dr again, has anyone else experienced anything similar? Thanks!
  13. Hi is this still available? What number is the ticket? Thanks!
  14. Sadly I woke up feeling really ill so am spending my excitingly planned day stuck in bed instead I’ll have to try and make it to his class another time because it sounds so much fun!
