Miss Persistent

She made a very significant contribution to ballet here in Australia too, she will be missed by many I am sure. Here is the obituary in the Telegraphy http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/obituaries/10796407/Gailene-Stock-obituary.html

Very sad news, although not unexpected as she had been obliged to stop working suddenly last year. I am sure her memory will live on with all those whose lives she touched. Condolences to her family and friends.

Alison Roper is retiring from the stage at OBT. This video finds her dancing around the city. Striking!

 

Seems like she's wrapping her feet a lot; anyone know why?

Thanks for posting, I remember back in high school ( many many years ago) we studied this play for our "A" level English Lit exam and also put on a production so I know it well. This brought it all back and I would love to see the ballet - maybe some time!

Thank you so much for posting. It could be my story told there. I could so totally relate. I am still struggling with the fact that I never had and will never had a paid job in a company but that I can still be a "real" dancer, living fully her passion.
