The group meets monthly and each session has a theme usually a choreographer or a particular ballet theatre. We see a varied programme of documentaries, extracts, short pieces and full-length ballets. Sessions are friendly and informal.
Recent topics covered have been the British Ballet in the 21st century, and the work of choreographer Jiri Kylian with the Netherlands Dance Theatre.
Plans for future sessions include:
Ballet in France:
  • The choreography of Roland Petit
  • The Paris Opera Ballet
  • La Dame aux Camelias.
The Royal Danish Ballet:
  • The Bournonville style of dancing
  • La Sylphide.
The group meets at 1.30pm on either the 1st Thursday or 4th Wednesday of each month.
Numbers are limited, but I could accommodate a few new members.
