On Monday night 35 chosen students from years 7-11 were given the opportunity to see students from the London Russian Ballet School and principal artistes from the famous Bolshoi ballet perform at the London Palladium.
It was a lovely programme as the audience were treated to extracts from Swan Lake, Don Quixote, Bolero and the Carmen Suite to name a few.
Romantic Revolution was certainly a Ballet Revolution as it changed the way our students view ballet. Here are some of their thoughts:
‘It was better than Swan Lake’ Carlos (Yr 11)
‘Beautiful’ Nayana (Yr 10)
‘Inspiring, did you see how many pirouettes they did?’ Artinis (Yr 10)
My best quote is this one from Jacob in Year 11 ‘For a person that does not usually like ballet, I can honestly say that I really liked it’
All of us teachers were inspired also, we may well dust off our pointe shoes and tutus.
