Ellie Posted January 25, 2014 Share Posted January 25, 2014 I am interested to know, especially having read in the forum 'Doing Dance' about the lack of knowledge on 'normal' schools part regarding dance and dancing students how the outreach programmes in the UK work. Do the companies get in contact with and visit the schools, or vice versa ? I remember in the late '70's or early '80's members of either the RB or London Festival Ballet (sorry can't remember which one) visited our local town hall performed a couple of excerpts of Coppelia and Fille and gave a Q&A session. It was open (and free) to all, many local schools attended and it gave a valuable glimpse (especially to the young boys !) into the rigors and skill involved in ballet. Does this sort of event still happen ? Although it was before my time I know that Peter Brinson did tremendous work with 'Ballet for All' in the '60's and early '70's and, as an aside, if anyone is aware if his written articles are available as a volume I'd be very keen to find out. x Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
