It's not easy (or cheap) being a ballet-goer.

A Royal Ballet spokesman said yesterday: "She is committed to returning to the company but, of course, she is entitled to her six months' maternity leave after February."
Nice to know the Royal Ballet provides a six month leave. Are their dancers on paid leave?

I'm at the stage where I'm thinking I will never see her dance again! But I wish Darcy Bussell all the best.

I'm with you on this! The day before this announcement I booked tickets to take my daughter to London for her spring break/birthday. I made sure that Darcey was scheduled for a performance, thinking that this might be one of her last seasons.
I'm consoling myself by being happy for Darcey. I hope it all goes well for her, and that she finds herself back in the company for at least a little while once her leave is over.
You know-- in the dance world, we can never count on seeing anyone. At least she isn't pulling out due to a painful injury!
I AM kicking myself for spending an additional day in York (which is a gorgeous place) the last time I was in England, instead of going to the RB. The program didn't excite me, but Darcey was scheduled. I have never seen her in live performance--I hope I do someday!
And hey, a trip to London is always a good thing! We'll still go to the RB, the theater, I'll spend a couple of days at a conference--didn't that work out well? I also got a great deal--the airfares are unreal. PM me if you want to know about a great company for European packages.
