scherzo

Hello from Manchester

3 posts in this topic

I am at school in Manchester in the UK. I used to do ballet myself, but gave up when I came to secondary school (tut tut - but it is an all-boys school! :wink: ). I don't actually see that much ballet live: once or twice a year I get down to London (in the school holidays of course!) and see the Royal Ballet, and if other companies come to Manchester I see some of those too. A rather starry example: we saw the Bolshoi last year in Spartacus!

Anyway, I have been reading these message boards for at least a year now, and the many, many discussions on this board are so interesting that I couldn't resist joining to have a go myself. I'm basically here to learn.

PS As you can see, I tend to go on and on a lot.

Welcome to Ballet Talk, scherzo! We hope you enjoy the site. And we'd love to hear what you think about the Balanchine triple bill.

Welcome, scherzo! You're lucky to live in a place where you do regularly get to seeing great companies perform! Alas, where I'm from you have to make do with hearsay (which I get on BalletTalk, of course) and pray hard that some famous dancer or company finds themselves at a bit of a loose end and deigns to pay us a flying visit! :wink:
