Just to add that Dance East is also planning a Retreat for Principals/Directors of professional ballet and dance schools around the world. According to the press release, "It became obvious at the first Artistic Directors' Retreat that many of the issues currently facing ballet companies could not be taken in isolation, but must be shared with the professional training institutions that feed the companies. The organisers believe that it is in the foundations of training that old habits can be broken and new directions for ballet can be seeded. Accordingly, the Retreat will look at a range of issues including: training, education, injuries, relationships with ballet companies, choreographic development and career planning."


A date has yet to be announced.
