Even for the most well-attended events, people are always found a seat!

The report will be written as soon as possible and, when it is approved by Vadim Muntagirov, it will be posted under REPORTS on the LBC''s website. This is: https://www.tlbc.org.uk

There is a picture of Vadim taken last night on the home page and that will also be on Instagram [ https://instagram.com/londonballetcircle/  ] and Facebook [ https://facebook.com/LondonBalletCircle ]

I was lucky enough to attend last night. A great interview with interesting questions and even more interesting responses - despite Vadim saying at the beginning that he hoped we wouldn’t be too bored (as if)! He has a really lovely personality and how lucky we are to have him over here.

Yes I saw the photo of Vadim. It's lovely. He looks about 18 never mind 28! 

Many thanks for the info Capybara. I'll keep checking the website.

Wasn’t it a delightful evening, Vadim charmed us all I think. He was so positive and appreciative. I can see why he is called Vadream by his partners.

Unfortunately, the "In Conversation" evening with Henry Danton (the centenarian dance teacher and former RB dancer) has had to be postponed until June because Henry has decided not to travel from the US at the moment. 

There will thus be no event this coming Monday, 16th March.

What a shame, although to be expected, especially given his age.

I know that repetition is normally against BCF rules but,  since it is important to avoid people turning up for cancelled events (as happened last night for Henry Danton,  despite notices in the LBC Newsletter and on its website as well as on here), a belt and braces approach is hopefully forgiveable in the circumstances.

 

The following LONDON BALLET CIRCLE events have now been postponed or cancelled until further notice:

 

Anna Rose O'Sullivan, First Soloist of The Royal Ballet "In Conversation" - was 6th April

Visit to Dance Forward Easter Course at the RAD - was 11th April

Visit to Freeds - was 20th April

Visit to The Royal Ballet School - was 28th April

An Evening of Words and Music with Gavin Sutherland Music Director/Conductor of ENB - was 5th May

Remembering Rudolf - a special reflection on Nureyev's life and work including reminiscences, film and dance - was 18th May

 

It is hoped to be able to resume activities in June! Fingers crossed as there are some exciting guests in prospect in addition to those above.

 

Members are being notified by e-mail or letter but, in view of the wider interest of this programme, it seems important to post the news here as well.

Meanwhile, there are some reports online of recent conversations with guests from the ballet world which people might be interested to read: https://www.tlbc.org.uk/lists/3-reports

Unfortunately, Dance Europe did not change the notice about Anna Rose O'Sullivan at The London Ballet Circle on the 6th April to indicate that the event was cancelled. It is, of course, but Anna Rose will be 'in conversation' as soon as possible once life settles down.

NEWS OF AN EXCITING NEW LBC INITIATIVE

 

After some experimentation behind the scenes, the LBC is very pleased to announce that, henceforward, it will be offering a virtual programme of ‘talks’ via Zoom. The ‘launch’ will be at 7.00pm on the 13th July when the “In Conversation” guest will be Cassa Pancho MBE, the Founder, CEO and Artistic Director of Ballet Black.

 

The specific link to Zoom will be posted on this thread a few days before the event and everyone is welcome to join in.

 

Other guests will be announced shortly, so watch this space!

Although the Committee members have not had any problems with Zoom themselves,  the LBC has now been advised that there can be a risk of meetings being 'hacked' if the links to them are shared openly online.

Therefore, to be on the safe side, we will be sending out the joining information to LBC members only. Members of balletcoforum who wish to 'attend' the talks will be very welcome to do so but please would you send your name and e-mail address to info@tlbc.org.uk so that you can be included in the circulation (which, for the event on the 13th July, will issue during the weekend immediately prior)............... Thanks!
