Ballet dancers Agnes Oaks and Thomas Edur first met as schoolchildren in Estonia - and even then Thomas knew she was the girl for him. Twenty years later, they're married and dancing the leads in Romeo and Juliet

very interesting. they came to the u.s. the first time i know of in the competition in jackson in 1990, where they won the prize for best couple. at that time their names were age oks and toomas edur, but i supposed they changed them to be easier for their audience.

Dance profile: Thomas Edur
Fresh prince - Debra Craine reports for The Times


If any one dancer in Britain deserves to be more famous, it is Thomas Edur.
Since he arrived here, fresh-faced from Estonia in 1990, Edur has proved himself to be a sublime classical dancer and one of the most romantic leading men on our dance stage. It helps that he is gorgeous, of course, but looks aren’t everything. His Russian-influenced style is radiantly pure, his dancing is full of aristocratic polish and he has a wonderful ear for music. He is a perfect 19th-century prince, the embodiment of the classical danseur noble. Yet he can be as edgy and modern as anyone.

With his wife Agnes Oaks, he is one half of the golden couple of ballet. Together they dance around the world, while still maintaining their links with English National Ballet which, aside from an unhappy year at Birmingham Royal Ballet, has been their artistic home.
