 I've only seen the Royal Ballet live once and it was an amazing experience. The one dancer that stood out was Nehemiah Kish. He danced so effortlessly and with such passion that I could not take my eyes off him! It was Raymonda Act III and my DD had the privilege of meeting him after the performance. He couldn't sign his autograph straight away as his hands were shaking so much from all the adrenaline!

I would love to see Steven McRae or Carlos Acosta perform live. My favourite might change………..
