<B>Royal Ballet boost for boys</B><BR>BY RICHARD SMITH from The East Anglian Daily Times<P><BR>FOR the first time in its 76-year-history, the Royal Ballet School has accepted more boys than girls – and a youngster from East Anglia is one of those to gain a prestigious place.<P>Out of hundreds of applicants for the school's junior section it has chosen 14 boys and 10 girls, with 11-year-old Nick Jones, from Suffolk, among them.<P>He is following in the steps of his 16-year-old brother Alex who is at the school and their proud parents, Chris and Sue Jones, are hoping there could be a hat-trick of successes.<P>For their youngest son Oliver, eight, is auditioning in June for the Junior Associates section of the school. Their daughter Sarah was also a promising dancer but she was too tall to be selected.<P><A HREF="http://www.eadt.co.uk/content/news/NewsStory.asp?Brand=EADOnline&Category=News&ItemId=IPED07+May+2002+17%3A54%3A48%3A850" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A><BR>

Gailene Stock and The Royal Ballet School
Building Bridges By Gerald Dowler for The Stage

This month sees the departure of the The Royal Ballet Upper School from its old premises at Baron’s Court into splendid new accommodation at 46 Floral Street, across the road from the Royal Opera House and linked to it (and thereby to The Royal Ballet) by a new bridge, practical and symbolic, already in place above the street. Just before the move, the Director of the School, Gailene Stock AM, spoke to Gerald Dowler about a wide range of issues, from her own dance training, which included a year spent at The Royal Ballet School, her professional career and then her progression into dance education, culminating in her present post. The move heralds a new era, and fulfils Dame Ninette de Valois’ long cherished dream that School and Company should be housed together. The formal opening celebrations will come later; this article aims to profile Gailene Stock, who has already made such a significant contribution to the work of the School and who will lead it into its new home and its future.

You say pirouette, I say breakdance
The Royal Ballet School and a comprehensive in London's East End might not have much in common, but a passion for dance has brought the two together. Could their partnership be the start of a new trend? Caronline Haydon reports for The Independent

You can drive from the Royal Ballet School in White Lodge, Richmond, to Brampton Manor School in Newham in two hours. West to east the journey takes you from the leafy confines of Richmond Park, where the ballet school nestles among leafy green trees and where well-heeled families exit en masse on bicycles when the weather is fine, right across London and out the other side to East Ham, where Brampton Manor does its nestling alongside the A13 flyover to Barking.

Newham is one of the most deprived boroughs in London. Near the heart of the old docklands, Brampton Manor inherits many of the problems thrown up by the surrounding poverty.

But walking in, you are met with a couple of surprises. The modern buildings might still be a building site, but the courtyards are being elegantly landscaped – in one case into a map of the world, though the banana tree planted in Africa died during the winter.

Royal Ballet honours Queen's sister
From the BBC website


Princess Margaret was President of the Royal Ballet School
The Queen has unveiled a plaque honouring her late sister, Princess Margaret, at a ceremony for the Royal Ballet School's new £18m premises in London's Covent Garden.
The building has been built next to the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, which houses the ballet company.

The site has been built specifically to accommodate and train the pupils of the Upper Royal Ballet School, but also contains a studio for public performances.

The plaque, which is in the adjacent Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, commemorates the "dedication, enthusiasm and support" of the princess, who was President of the Royal Ballet School and Royal Ballet Companies for 46 years.

Interesting article from The Guardian about a new Royal Ballet School initiative.

Quote:
Kamal Assaf is a pupil at Brampton Manor school in Newham, east London. His favourite film is Save the Last Dance, the story of a ballerina who is taught to street dance by a boy from the hood.
Fiction has become reality for Kamal. During the past year, he has been sharing his breakdance moves and learning to pirouette with students from the Royal Ballet school.

Step up for two ballet dancers
TWO young dancers have been selected to train with The Royal Ballet School. From This is wiltshire.

Kara Fogerty, 15, and Lucinda Pott, 12, of Highworth, both attend the Judith Hockaday School of Dance in Old Town, and beat more than a hundred others from Wiltshire and Somerset to be among the final 12 who made it through.

Although not attending The Royal Ballet School itself, as associates they will attend lessons with Royal Ballet tutors once every two weeks, starting in September.

Royal Ballet reaches out to the East End's Billy Elliots

by VANESSA THORPE
the Observer

Ballet lessons and the middle classes go together like tutus and tights; that is the popular perception. ...

Britain's Royal Ballet School believes it can turn this idea on its head. This week it is to launch a dance inclusion programme which will reach less affluent children in four new centres around Britain.

Phew! Very pleased they have sorted this out. I guess Livingstone was playing hard ball to get as good a deal as he could for London.
