Recommended Posts

Samira Saidi is stepping down from her position as Head of Intensive courses& International Relations 

Samira successfully built up the intensive courses and created the on line courses .

i’m sure the RBS will miss her 

she also did a great job at ENBS before being replaced by the disastrous Carlos Valcarcel 

wishing her all the best in her new ventures

Best wishes to Samira Saidi for the future.

 

Not that it's got anything to do with the price of fish but I saw a BRB big tent performance in the late 80s in Lancaster.  It was a performance of Giselle with Samira Saidi and Kevin O'Hare and was the first performance I saw where I sobbed out loud.  I've never forgotten that performance!

Is Iain Mackay taking over from Samira Saudi?  It mentioned the International Relations aspect in the notification but not the Intensive Courses.  Is this a new job?  It didn’t say he was her replacement.  I know she is still there so is she staying on now but getting assistance.

No Samira Saidi has left now I believe. The school posted about it on their website last month I think

Okay, just looked at the RBS news and Emma Northmore is taking over from Samira.  What is happening to her successful Ballet Boost?  Surely she can’t do both?

I’d say anyone teaching Associates would need to have either their own school or many other teaching assignments/jobs to make enough income. But if a full time employee of RBS? I’d expect any additional work would need to be with RBS permissions & presumably non conflicting/non financially benefiting from RBS association (but of course it would help immensely in getting gigs for teaching/coaching/

adjudicating/mentoring etc etc…) Just I guess like I’m any career…. Thinking MP’s….?🤔

  • Jan McNulty changed the title to Samira Saidi retires from RBS and Emma Northmore appointed to her position

At least one Associates teacher teachers at another upper school and one with her own school teaches JAs and Ballet Boost (or at one time did).  They are all ballet teachers and making a living as such.  You couldn’t make a living in a few hours of Royal Associates teaching a week.

Good luck to Samira!  She has done a wonderful job.

 

Emma was removed from the Ballet Boost website in Aug and is now solely working for the Royal Ballet School. There is a new leadership team I think -  Monique in admin, Leanne Cope/James Butcher and Sarah Kundi are leadership. I think she set this up when her mum passed away so it has actually been like this a while, with Leanne and James in charge, so everything was sorted quite a long time ago.
