Thank you, Jan (and Anna?) for all your sterling work in moving the posts across.

 

Team effort but Jan did the majority! ☺️

Just wondering if anyone from this forum is doing The Ballet Retreat this weekend?  It'll be my first time...

Yes, I'm doing it. I've been to lots before (I think this is my 8th). I'm sure you will love it.

 

They always used to be held at Rambert but they have had difficulty making bookings there recently so have switched to Sadler's Wells. The studio is not as spacious as at Rambert or at Northern where they hold their Leeds retreats. But the lunches are pretty good!

They look good but unfortunately way too expensive for me!

 TBR  is worth it 

theres 3 reasons why TBR  costs what  it costs 

staffing  ratio ( especially Leeds) although London   is often less generously staffed than Leeds  normally  there's at least  3  members of  team TBR present all day ( although i am aware of one London where  it was just David and the pianist - as Georgina was on maty leave and none of the Leeds based people were available )   (Leeds usually  4 or 5 members of the team   H +  DPK  , plus a selection of  Gav / Kev / Nic G / Giuliano / Antoinette - although this January  saw a DPK less  retreat  due to him being unwell - and  two  guest teachers for company  class  Pippa Moore on Saturday and Simon Kidd on Sunday  )  

you have a pro standard Pianist  all day every day - ( 'company class'  , rep relevant class, and rep  - only falling back to recordings if the rep sessions  split into  boys and girls   )

the overall package  (food and drinks , plus the management processes)

Hmmm..... the TBR I went to was combined Xmas & Birthday present.... now wondering if I forego the promised birthday shopping for a few clothes & ask for another TBR instead....trouble is I’d look like a tramp as not really had new clothes for over 10 years!!
