Critics' Circle National Dance Awards 2012

Recommended Posts

Here's a note from Scottish Ballet announcing their delight:


"Held this afternoon at The Place London, the National Dance Awards are organised eachyear to celebrate the vigour and variety of Britain’s thriving dance


Scottish Ballet is delighted to announce that the Best Classical Choreography Award was awarded to Annabelle Lopez Ochoa for Scottish Ballet’s
production of A Streetcar Named Desire.


Annabelle who attended the event this afternoon is delighted with the award:


I would like to thank the entire creative team at Scottish Ballet and of course the dancers - without them the story would not
have been told. For me, the success of A Streetcar Named Desire means that narrative ballet is back. I have always believed that dance has the power to
tell a story, and the combination of a theatre director and a choreographer works so well. It means a lot to me that so many people were moved by Streetcar, this
will definitely not be my last narrative ballet.”


Scottish Ballet’s Artistic Director Christopher Hampson added:


“I am absolutely thrilled that the winning combination of Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and Theatre Director Nancy Meckler has won the approval of the Critics
Circle after performances delighted audiences across the country.”
