What have you missed?

The Spring Holiday Ballet School

Our Holiday Ballet School was a huge success. A huge thank you to Fusako Skelton.

The Hilal Dance Workshop

Suraya Hilal direct from Italy in her residency with the Hilal dancers in October. Feet stepping to the earth's heartbeat, body whirling, turning the rotations of planets, stars reflecting in her eyes, the dancer opens her lyrical arms, and enfolds the universe. (anon translated from Arabic).
