She is a fine dancer, who doesn't seem to get as much credit as she deserves. Her Firebird is much more interesting than that of the Kirov dancers I have seen to date. The picture above shows the dramatic intensity that she brings to the role. She also excels in much of the MacMillan rep. <P><A HREF="http://www.hello-magazine.co.uk/2001/07/09/ballet/" TARGET=_blank><B>more...</B></A><P><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited July 11, 2001).]

I seem to remember that she was also an Adeline Genée medal winner once.<BR>Did she not also have a dancer sister, or am I getting confused?<P>Someone enlighten me please, if you can?

Spot on Red Shoes! An old RB programme tells me that Leanne won the Adeline Genée Gold Medal and a Prix de Lausanne. Before her RB career she danced with Sadler's Wells Royal Ballet, English National Ballet and Deutsches Oper Ballet.

I can remember a dancer in the Royal Ballet called Madonna Benjamin. I have a feeling she now works in television, Could this have been her sister?

I remember (just!) when Leanne Benjamin - then called Leanne Faye Benjamin - graduated from the RB School and was heavily tipped by the critics as The One To Watch. Looks like they were right!
