Yesterday myself, Ian and four members of our team were at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London for the annual Royal Ballet School performance on the main stage. What a magnificent occasion! The dancers excelled themselves. It was hard to remember that this was a school show as the standard of the work was extraordinary and all the students were amazing.
The highlight of the long and varied performance was Paquita. Superbly danced by 15 young dancers we, at IDS, we’re thrilled and honoured to have sponsored this production of the Heritage Ballet. The Pas de Trois was very special for me as one of the dancers, Evangeline Ball, is the former student of one of MY former students from Crosby, Liverpool!
As usual the Grand Defile brought this wonderful event to an emotional close.
Many congratulations to everyone who made this happen but especially to all the beautiful dancers.
