capybara Posted July 1, 2016 Share Posted July 1, 2016 (edited) The Royal Ballet School opened at Holland Park last night with a terrific display of talent, especially on the part of the young men. The programme was focused on performances from the Upper School students and comprised: Les Patineurs (Ashton) with Harrison Lee (2015 Prix de Lausanne Winner) outstanding as the Blue Boy Spring Time (Bintley) Allegro Jeunesse (Scarlett) danced by White Lodge students with Daichi Ikarashi drawing the eye as he did last year Concerto Grosso (Tomasson) a wonderful vehicle for displaying the talents of five the 3rd year Upper School men including Joseph Sissons, Joseph Aumeer and Giacomo Rovero who are all heading towards the Royal Ballet Mistake Waltz (Robbins) – a great fun way to start the second half Vertigo Maze (Stijn Celis) Candere (Charlotte Edmunds) specially choreographed for the 2nd Year Upper School Two Pigeons Gypsy Dance (Ashton) Soirees Musicales (MacMillan) with Rovero, Sissens and Aumeer shining alongside Kaho Yanagisawa Congratulations to all the performers. I hope that you managed to keep yourselves warm in such a cold and windy venue. You certainly heated up your enthusiastic audience. The programme (which was difficult to obtain because of the crush) contains additional details of student contracts for 2016. I will list those in the Doing Dance section.
