  4. Kristen McNally in The Royal Ballet Creates at Apple Store, London

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 15 April 2011Performance 9 April 2011

    “The fun is seeing these suggestions build up and develop. Having walked through the suggested positions, the dancers dance it through, flat out. Seemingly unlinked poses and points are suddenly joined up, creating a coherent dance.”

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 15 April 2011Performance 12 - 17 April 2011

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 15 April 2011Performance 6 - 16 April 2011

  9. Tango Fire in Flames of Desire at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 15 April 2011Performance 12-23 April 2011

    ‘Their dancing is light, speedy and intricate, with the women moving on the tippiest of their toes and the men muscularly nimble. Recommended.’  

  10. Diaghilev Festival: Les Saisons Russes du XXI Siecle at London Coliseum

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 15 April 2011Performance 12 - 17 April 2011

    “A lot of sifting is required to find the real Diaghilev here. But loyal fans will probably find it is worth the effort.”
