Once again, we have arranged a visit to the Upper School in Floral Street to watch classes and rehearsals. This is a joint visit for the Ballet Association and London Ballet Circle.
If you would like to attend, please send your name, address and contact details (preferably an e-mail address) to David Bain, Chairman, The Ballet Association, 23 Capstan Square, Stewart Street, London E14 3EU. The cost of the visit will be £15.00. Please enclose a cheque made payable to The Ballet Association. If you have no e-mail address, please enclose a stamped addressed envelope. All monies collected will be donated to The Royal Ballet School to provide additional funds for students. Please apply before 10th April. If you would like to bring a guest, at a cost of £20, please enclose a separate cheque for them. Based on numbers attending over the last couple of years, we expect there to be places for some guests. These places will not be confirmed until after the 10th April. If you pay by electronic transfer, please indicate clearly that the payment is for the RBS visit.
We will not be issuing tickets. Places will be confirmed by email (or post) after 10th April. Your name will be placed on a list, which will be held at the door. If a 9.00 am start is too early for you, it will be possible to join us at break or lunchtime. Please indicate in your letter if you will be a late arrival. (Please try not to trickle in during a class.) The School politely requests that you leave the premises during the lunch break as they do not have the space to allow you to eat lunch on site. However, if you have any mobility issues, please indicate this in your letter and provision will be made for you to stay on site during the break and seating will be reserved for you in the studio.
A provisional programme for the day will be included in the next newsletter.
