  3. I've just gotten home from watching Cats with my 11 yr old and his friend, I loved it, so did they, giving it 8 out of ten. I agree. I went expecting to hate it. I hadn't seen the stage version, so had no comparison as a starting point. It really was a festive treat, Francesca Hayward was lovely, appearing in just about every scene. She has a really beautiful expressive face which added to her role. I was surprised that she sang, I am hoping it was indeed her. Steven McRae's tap dancing was phenomenal! I can't work out why the film received zero or only one star re

  11. Hello everyone! I love to read books about ballet and to see ballet movies and documentaries (not recordings of ballet performances though!) . I think here we can share suggestions with each other about those books and films we like and recommend. All the following I've seen or read and recommend highly: In no particular order: Books: Nureyev by Kavanagh Apollo's Angels by Jennifer Homens White Swan, Black Swan by Adrienne Sharp (fiction) Winter Season: A Dancer's Journal by Toni Bentley Margot Fonteyn by M. Daneman Does anyone know of any good novels set in the world of

  13. Sounds ... different: Dir-Scr-Prod Superflex Denmark 2017 69min Prod Co Superflex A work of staggering ambition in production and storytelling that matches the stature of its controversial subject – one of Europe’s most contentious building projects. The Mærsk Opera is a musical reworking of the machinations behind the construction of the giant edifice of Copenhagen’s new opera house. It was donated to the city of Copenhagen by the late Mærsk McKinney-Møller, the world’s largest shipping owner and Denmark’s richest man. But there were conditions. It ha
  14. A woman who in many ways changed the face of dance for me - one Wendy Whelan - is still at 46 seeking new avenues of dance. She is ever brave; ever brilliant. Her self-commissioned RESTLESS CREATURE programme comes to Sadler's Wells in July. In response to Judith Mackrell's Guardian request as to what her reading audience might like to see I finished my response by wanting to see RESTLESS CREATURE. 'One can dream, huh' I concluded. Who says dreams don't come true (Ref: last paragraph of Deborah Jowitt's wonderful and obviously very personal review: http://www.artsjo
  15. I saw a marvellous presentation of clips and some previously unseen home movies of the Nicholas Brothers last night- presented as part of BFI Black Stars season, by Bruce Goldstein, New York cinema man and lifelong fan who made a documentary about them in 1991. They are the most sensational dancers and have a definite balletic grace though apparently they were entirely self taught. A short clip of Fred Astaire (who was also a huge fan of theirs) dancing with them in the back lot of a studio was a most exquisite moment. My attempts to post a link are not working but I will try again..
  16. DD likes to watch films etc. when she is stretching as she stretches for a long time each day so I was wondering if anyone knew about any ballet related films that she could watch? ( she's 12 so not ones for 18+ etc). She loved first position the documentary about YAGP.
