Hi everyone,

To introduce myself, I'm from the UK, now living in Amsterdam. My first career was as a ballet dancer. I studied at the Royal Ballet School in London and went on tour with Sadler's Wells Royal Ballet. I then toured Europe with Wiener Ballett Theater (Vienna Ballet Theatre) dancing in the classics, The Nutcracker, Swan Lake...

After retiring I moved into television and worked on the production of dance programmes for TV and video, including performances from the Kirov and the Royal Ballet. Many years later I am now a producer / director of dance films for TV, DVD, Blu-Ray and online distribution.

I'm passionate about ballet and would like to see more of it on film! I'm particularly interested to discuss what other ballet fans would like to see, on DVD and online.

Look forward to talking to other members!

Thanks Robin! I tried posting something on the Video thread but my post didn't appear - I'm hoping an administrator will see this and let me know what I did wrong!
