The Ballet Association is a fine organisation that makes it possible for ballet fans in the London area to hear leading performers and administrators discuss the art form they love. The final two meetings of the season over the next couple of months. <P>On Thursday 13 June, whilst the Royal Ballet is in Australia, the guests will be <B>Sandra Conley and Oliver Symons</B>. Although both retired from the Company last year, Oliver from his post as Assistant Artistic Coordinator and Sandy as Principal Character Artist, both can be seen on stage this season. Oliver has been seen nightly in La Bayadere and in Romeo and Juliet and Sandy was Berthe in some performances of Giselle.<P>The last meeting of the season will feature two of the younger members of the Company. On Thursday 11 July, just two days after the Company returns from Australia and a few days before the summer season, The Association's President, <B>David Drew will be joined by Natalie Decorte and Johannes Stepanek</B>, who will talk about the tour. Natalie is Australian, so will be returning home for the first time on a tour, whilst for Johannes this will mark the end of an eventful first year with the Royal Ballet, which has included roles such as Lensky in Onegin. <P>At the start of their next season the Association has lined up Tony Hall, Executive Director of The Royal Opera House. <P>Meetings begin at 7.30 p.m. and are held at the Swedenborg Hall, Bloomsbury Way (nearest tube Holborn). Doors open at 6.45 p.m. Admission: Members £3, Concessionary members £2, Guests £5.<P>For general information about the <A HREF="http://www.balletassociation.co.uk/pages/what.html" TARGET=_blank><B>Ballet Association click here</B></A>.<P>And for <A HREF="http://www.balletassociation.co.uk/pages/how.html" TARGET=_blank><B>membership details, click here</B></A>.<P><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited May 30, 2002).]

The new ballet season is upon us and the Ballet Association has the following meetings lined up:

On Wednesday 16th October the guest speaker will be Deborah Bull. The former Royal Ballet Principal and now Artistic Director of the Clore Studio and the Linbury Theater is currently to be seen on Saturday nights on BBC2, with her new series 'The Dancer's Body.

On Wednesday 20th November the guest speaker will be Martin Harvey. Martin trained at the Royal Ballet School, where he danced the Wolf in 'Peter and the Wolf' and the Rake in 'The Rake's Progress'. He joined the company in 1996, was promoted to First Artist in 2000 and to Soloist this summer. Martin has created many roles in works presented in the Clore Studio and on Dance Bites. As well as dancing Mercutio and Tybalt, this last season culminated in his performance as Onegin.

The next meeting will be on Wednesday December 20th. Guest to be advised.
