Looking back on the last day of 2017… This site has been very quiet this year; but even if artistic production and performance has been less in evidence there has been significant BiSS activity of other sorts, both study and teaching…

Now that we are in December and Christmas is hurtling towards us, here are dates for the end of this term of ballet classes at URC and the beginning of next. Classes will continue as normal until and including Saturday 16th December; the only exception being that Ségolène Tarte will teach the advanced class on Thursday 14th December. I shall then take a Christmas break, resuming teaching the normal schedule from Thursday 11th January; thus the first Saturday classes will be on 13th January and the first Monday classes on 15th January.
Over the Christmas break however it will be possible to do advanced class with Ségolène at Mortimer Hall in Marston on Tuesday 19th December; and she also plans to resume teaching this class on Tuesday 9th January (to be confirmed).
Enjoy the festive season, and here’s wishing you a very Merry Christmas and all good wishes for a Happy New Year!
