  2. Ballet Cymru will dance Darius James and Amy Doughty's new production of Giselle in Leeds on 4 Nov, I have not yet seen it live but I watched the premiere online and reviewed it for Terpsichore on 9 July. In my review I wrote: "If Ballet Cymru ever offers this choreography as a workshop we [Powerhouse Ballet] would love to learn it. Once this third wave has subsided we shall learn the Coralli-Perrot-Petipa version of the dance of the wilis but the James and Doughty version would be such fun." Our wish was granted sooner than we had expected. The company has agreed to give us a workshop at Yorkshire Dance on 3 Nov between 17:15 and 18:30. Although Powerhouse Ballet are hosting the event we are not monopolizing it. It is open to any dancer who is in or can get to Leeds on Wednesday evening. My law practice is sponsoring the event so it is free to attendees. All they have to do is complete this registration form. After the workshop we shall be holding a little get together in Martha's Room from 18:30 to 20:00 which is open to balletomanes who don't want to take part in the workshop but would like to meet the choreographer and dancers. As they are Welsh and we are from Yorkshire we shall serve cacen cri, Yorkshire parkin and maybe an Indian treat to celebrate Diwali. Anybody wishing to attend the reception but not the workshop can register here. The main event of the get together will be my interview of Darius James and Beth Meadway who danced the lead role at the premiere between 19:00 and 19:30. For Ballet Cymru's fans throughout the world we are live streaming the interview over Zoom. Anybody wanting to watch that interview can sign up here.
  3. Powerhouse Ballet was gathering quite a nice little repertoire before March 2020. We had commissioned works by Terence Etheridge and Yvonne Charlton and Jane Tucker of Northern Ballet Academy had taught us "Waltz of the Flowers" from Act II of the Nutcracker a few weeks earlier. Alex Hallas of Ballet Cymru had given us a great workshop and we were about to learn "Snowflakes" from Act I of the Nutcracker when you know what stopped us in our tracks. We are now emerging from our slumber just like Princess Aurora and have planned a great workshop at Dance Studio Leeds between 2 and 5 pm this coming Saturday. Not everyone in our little troupe has begun to stir so I have 6 places for whoever wants them. The workshop is sponsored by my practice so attendees will not be charged. For more information see the Eventbrite card here.
  4. Following on from the success of the summer workshop, my daughter and her emerging small company are running a morning workshop in the Christmas holidays and it would be wonderful if some forum members’ dancers could join her. It is aimed at 8 - 12 year olds and will be held in Henley-on-Thames on Saturday 4th January. They have based the workshop on their current piece and the focus will be contemporary dance, although no contemporary experience will be necessary as they will be adapting it to meet a variety of levels to cater for everyone who signs up. The workshop will be lead by two professional dancers (Elmhurst/Rambert trained) and they will do a class and a creative session.  Please do message me with an email address if this is of interest and I will pass your details on to her, or I can answer basic questions myself! 
  5. My daughter and her emerging small company are running a one day dance workshop in the summer and it would be wonderful if some forum members’ dancers could join her. It is aimed at 9 - 14 year olds and will be held in Henley-on-Thames on 29th August. They have based the workshop on their current piece and the focus will be contemporary, although no contemporary experience will be necessary as they will be adapting it to meet a variety of levels to cater for everyone who signs up. They will do a class, learn some rep and do a creative session - all with two professional dancers and a live musician - so I’m hoping it will be an enjoyable and constructive day.  Please do message me with an email address if this is of interest and I will pass your details on to her, or I can answer basic questions myself!  (I have reposted this as the age range has changed and I wanted to be sure to catch everyone.)

The emphasis will be on shifting mindsets for more happiness and greater success. Participants will:- Connect deeply with their intention to dance. Clarity on our 'why' serves as a strong motivator.

  9. I have just put my daughter's name on a waiting list for a workshop with Ballet Cymru with Pas de deux. The organiser told me that if they received applicants from more boys those on the waiting list could also move up. The workshop is on Sunday April 17th 2016 at Newport. If you're in the South West its easy to get to and these opportunities don't come our way very often. Please have a look at their website for details - I found out about it through this forum. Oh and its very cheap £21 for the Intermediate Advanced class!
