Christine Woodward - another sad loss.

This month's Dancing Times has a long obituary for Christine Woodward who died in Ocotober. She had a long and varied career, trained RBS, danced with Rambert (classical), RB Touring, RB Covent Garden, eventually moving on to stage management. Then later retuning to ballet to teach and coach. However, in recent years she taught Central's Pre Senior girls which is where I met her.  She was one of the best teachers I have ever encountered, and combined her knowledge with a kind, generous personality.

Oh my goodness! Christine was dd’s Pre-Senior teacher at Central and what a wonderful gifted teacher she was.  She always addressed the students as “Dancers” and taught as if the studio was the stage at the ROH, telling them they must project all the way to the back of the Amphi.  I had no idea she’d died.  What a great loss.
