Well, the ENB education site did not have info about last Saturday on it - so in case it doesn't have information about the next class on it, we'll let you know!


Jenny - I might try to see if I can get to an ENB matinee on the Saturday. We'll see - depends on times and costs! However, I think you live closer to London than I do? You might want to try and go to the RB or Sadlers Wells sometime before June then! The ROH also has day seats available, and a lot of matinees in May. Like I said, check out the ballettalk board for information on seats and day seats, and also check out the ROH website! Enjoy!


And, Jenny makes a good point about the need for more Adult Ballet days. I've posted about this elsewhere, and others here have also mentioned this, but the two major things missing in adult ballet education (besides just finding classes!) are rep and partnering! Obviously they need to be catered to the level of the student, but they teach valuable skills! (How to be spatially aware, how to portray a character, etc. etc. etc.). There's ADC in the U.S. that addresses this in its summer camp - but yes, we need more, and more often! :( (not that I'm greedy or anything! well... okay so maybe I am when it comes to ballet!)

Hi Tara,

just to put your mind at ease - I only started ballet class twice weekly last september, and there were a few others in the same boat. It was a great experience and though some parts of the day were quite different from what i am used to, i was learning :D


I just tryed my best and had fun, everyone was really friendly and we can all arrange to meet up again.


If i can do it - im sure you can :P


Ami lol - you were a very beautiful dancer - as i said Saturday :D


Jenny - next time shall bring some proper pics to show you all!


Fish - Are you getting excited about Laban yet? (little of the subject - sorry!)

You have put my mind at rest I really want to go to the next and I would be nice to meet you all. Put faces to names. At the moment on the dance front, I am busy rehearing for a dance festival. The adult class I go to are doing two pieces a tap and also modern. So I am sitting behind my desk with very sore legs

DSL - we are talking past each other! What the rest of us mean is that they are going to do a dance-based programme for adults on a SATURDAY - not the Friday event that they have listed... and that previous dance-based events - for example, the Tuesday classes and last Saturday's rep day, were not on the site...


My impression is that this is because of limited space and high numbers of enrollment.


SO - just in case it's not up on the site, we'll spread the word.


edited to add: the info that *is* on their site is more of the 'tour' thing that Jenny and I have been discussing here. There is information about at: www.ballet.org.uk, click on education. Also you can check www.ballet.co.uk, and go to the ENBtalk section (this is the link I provided earlier - page 3 or 4 of this thread).

I am very tempted to go, the only minus is that in the evening I am doing the playtex moonwalk. Could I do class then power walk 13 miles in the evening.
