  1. E-mail from ENB - not going to cut/paste the whole thing as takes up far too much space but you get the idea.... Mods...I couldn't find this anywhere else but please move if appropriate ENB at Home: Ballet on Demand and BalletActive Classic titles available to rent and view on demand + online dance and fitness class subscriptions Throughout 2020, we have connected with hundreds of thousands of dance lovers all over the world via our ENB at Home programme of online classes and ballet streams. We are thrilled to announce the launch of a brand new ENB at Home onli
  2. I enjoyed a lot of the movement in this piece; those velvety, sumptuous fondue transitions that had a quality of liquid (or stringy mozzarella) that seemed to ripple. I wasn't quite sure of the narrative, if there was one, which sort of left a gap for me. Was I watching nature? Why can't we have more of the shaggy things? What was the meaning or do I have to create one by engaging with the dance in some way?
  3. This was interesting but not as accessible to me as Broken Wings. More visceral overall and colder. Definitely choreography I want to understand and appreciate more.
  4. I'm new to ballet in middle life. I don't know much about it and only have a few weeks of trying it out (Baroque dance is more my thing, but only have a few years experience). Anyway, someone pointed me to ENB's watch party of Broken Wings this week. I'd thought I'd give it a go but wasn't sure what to expect. But wow, I mean WOW!. Moving, comic, sad and sometimes disturbing - completely blown away by it and want to watch it again. But can't! Just very cool and gets me to want to explore more.

    Upper School and 16+

    Hello, Looking for know how and advice! My son will start y11 in Sept 2019, looking to apply for upper schools for sept 2020. It’s make or break year, and the threat of loss of identity if he doesn’t make it is looming large. His dream is ELmhurst, we will also apply to ENB and Central. He does not want to do a course that is more modern or contemporary. Does anyone have any advice, about the audition process, or what other options there are? We live in London which helps. Are there other options?
  6. I took 2 children aged 7 and 5 to a performance of ENB's My First Ballet: the Sleeping Beauty at Richmond Theatre. They loved it - so job well done. I didn't love it quite so much although I love the concept of these ballets. The ballet was narrated throughout, which was excellent and it also mirrored the mime happening on stage, which I really appreciated. Not sure any of the children did, but never mind. I learned quite a lot about mime. The story of the Sleeping Beauty was changed quite significantly. No spinning wheel (old fashioned I assume), so Aurora is prick

  8. Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! From Facebook: Nancy Osbaldston, for those unfamiliar with her, won ENB's Emerging Dancer award in 2013 and is properly amazing. Of course, I wish her all the best at her new company. May her career go from strength to strength.
  9.

  10. ENB kicked off their national tour of Swan Lake last night in Liverpool. It was pretty much full house (= cacophony of rustling papers etc!) but despite distractions it was a nice performance. Jurgita Dronina/Isaac Hernandez/James Streeter took the leads. I enjoyed the performance but overall it didn't get me emotionally this time. The swans were really good very well drilled and the corps de ballet in Act 1 and 3 were also very good. I think Rothbart and the swans were the best bit last night, and I must mention the 2 dancers who replaced Ken Sarasuhi they were both great and I really e

  17. It looks as though ENB has been invited to contribute to the Robbins celebration in the first half of the Paris Summer dance festival (Les Etes de la Danse) There are 2 Robbins programmes in the last week of June, 2018 (25-27; 28-30) at which ENB are expected to perform, in addition to New York City Ballet, Miami City Ballet and Joffrey, plus Pacific Northwest Ballet, which will be presenting contemporary ballets in the second week (July 3-7). Given ENB are doing The Cage in their Sadler's Wells season it is that ballet that they would be likely to do. The details of the seas
