Sorry folks, but i`m a dinosaur at providing links.I came across the first part of this documentary today on You Tube.Haven`t seen it before. I`m assuming it`s fairly old as the Upper School was still in Talgarth Road. But it was very interesting. Will have a look to see if I can find the rest of the documentary.

Oh there is a second part.But it only lasts for a few minutes.The rest of the film is missing. 

 

There is nothing missing.  The original programme only lasted half an hour.  I'm not sure why it was uploaded in two parts.  Here are the links to part 1, which lasts for less than 27 minutes, and part 2, which contains the last few minutes.

I watched this when my son was applying for WL (that was about 2003).  It already looked pretty old-fashioned then, but it was lovely to see as of course we didn't have much other information to draw on (there was hardly anything about the school on the old ballet.co forum and no YouTube!).  He did still get the dodgy tracksuits, and went to the Upper School in Baron's Court for a very short time as a JA before the new one opened. 

 

I'd love someone to tell me who some of the students are - I'm not very good at identifying dancers and I know some of them have gone on to be "famous".
