Ballet Recital

The Autumn Term Ballet Recital was held in the school Hall on Tuesday 6th December when a packed audience enjoyed a splendid variety of ballet performed by 30 of the School’s dancers. With the departure of an extremely talented Upper Sixth in July 2016 there was a concern that this year would seem tame by comparison. We need have no fear – the standard was as impressive as ever and Lisa Elkins should be congratulated on masterminding an excellent show. New members of the Sixth Form were much in evidence: Eloise Newell and Lola Wilcock – both post-grade 8 – have settled in very quickly and performed with great elegance. It was also a delight to see so many boys involved in the performance: Harry Whattoff, Fergus Flory and Tanaka Chitsenga partnered the senior girls in some glorious choreography. Special mention should be made of Kitty Howard who featured in four items and Ksenilla Kulikova who gave a most flexible and graceful rendition of her solo. A most effective lighting scheme was designed by Will Webb and he will clearly have the option of taking his technical skills further in the profession. The Christmas theme was capped with a snowy finale and the large audience felt thoroughly prepared for the festive season.
