Looking forward to Ballet West's tour of Scotland very much. This year the company will dance Swan Lake which they performed brilliantly in 2014. This is Swan Lake as I like it. No Antony. No Simon, No Odilia, No evil genius. And above all no bikes! The same artist dances Odette and Odille. There is a really menacing cape waving von Rothbart. All the usual divertissements. The tour starts in Stirling on 20 Jan and wends its way round central Scotland to Edinburgh on 18 Feb.

I have to replace the contents of my ballet bag which I lost on the way to Karen Sant's class last Tuesday. I made a start with some shoes and a leotard from Mr Frog's Dancewear in the Byram Arcade in Huddersfield. The store has been around since 1985 which was the year I moved to the area but I had never noticed it before. The shop carries a good range of women's and girls' dancewae and was able to sell me a pair of shoes to fit my flipper size feet. They have also ordered me a tent size leotard.
According to Professor Sir John Seeley the British empire was acquired in a fit of absence of mind. I had a somewhat less devastating fit for humanity (but distressing enough for me) when I left my treasured ballet bag from ...

Looking forward to Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre's Tour of the UK which will visit the Bradford Alhambra on 27 and 28 Sept. Their programme includes Alvin Ailey's "Revelations" shown in the attached clip.

Also worth seeing will be Jean-Christophe Maillor's "Romeo and Juliet" to be danced by Nrthern Ballet on 10 and 11 Oct. Maillot choreographed the Bolshoi's Taming of the Shrew which took London by storm earlier this month.

I have also uploaded a reference page for the Bradford Alhambra.

Having had a go at the golden idol and shades dances it is time to see the experts do them properly. The next opportunity for most of us Brits will be the Dutch National Ballet's production between 8 Oct and 13 Nov. I am going to see the matinee performance on the 13. There are convenient flights from Liverpool and Manchester and it would be great if some of my classmates from those cities or indeed anybody from the UK could join us out there. This is one of the world's greatest companies which is very similar in many ways to out own ENB. It has many links with the UK - Igone de Jongh trained at the Royal Ballet School, Ernst Meisner danced with the Royal Ballet for many years and its principal conductor and director of music Matthew Rowe comes from London. The Stopera is a great theatre - one of the most modern in the world. Amsterdam is a lovely city and although its a bit pricier since sterling took a fish dive it is still more reasonable than London. If my friends from KNT could make it to Amsterdam we could make a side trip to the Hague ti see our teacher Mark Hindle lead the gazelles in the Lion King. Prices for that show are outrageous and far more than for the equivalent seats in the Stopera but maybe a gaggle of Mancunians and Liverpudlians could negotiate a discount. If you do see the HNB you may wish to support its Friends' scheme.

Paul Chantry and Rae Piper's ballet about the flight of humanity from a dying earth to a new world couldn't be better timed. Yesterday astronomers from QMU discovered evidence of an exoplanet that might be able to sustain life orbiting our nearest star. The music fro this new work was written by Tim Mountain who composed the score for Chasing the Eclipse two years ago.

The work will be performed with "The Stacked Deck" a ballet based on game theory.

The double bill will open in Grantham on 26 Sept and tour Stanford, Birmingham and Worcester before arriving at Woolwich on 6 Oct.

I have just started an Adult Dance section in Terpsichore Yorkshire and included Dance Studio Leeds. That is because I have just received an August Ballet Newsletter from Katie Geddes with details of a new studio and new beginners and improvers classes on Mondays from 19 Sept.

Northern Ballet have revived David Nixon's "Wuthering Heights" and "Beauty and the Beast" and Jean-Christophe Maillot's "Romeo and Juliet" for their Autumn season. They have also commissioned a new full length work from Kenneth Tindall which will open in Leeds on 11 March before touring the country. Of the revivals my first choice is Maillot's Romeo and Juliet which I saw twice last year and enjoyed very much. Maillot also choreographed the Bolshoi's "Taming of the Shrew" which took London by storm. I am a bit of a fan of Maillot and can't wait to see his work again. I am also looking forward to Tindall's "Casanova" as I have enjoyed his Luminous Junc*ture and The Architect very much.

Introduction
Although I make my living from the law I am passionate about the arts and in particular dance. I started to appreciate that art relatively late in life. I did not study dance as a child and I think I was led to it by an exhibition of stage sets and costumes of the great Russian artist Leon Bakst. That in turn led me to Stravinsky's music and ultimately to a performance at the Coliseum from which I have never looked back. I also discovered the value of the discipline of the class even later in life. I took my first lesson as an undergraduate at St. Andrews. Even then I was the wrong shape and size and showed no aptitude whatsoever but 40 years on I am still enjoying class even though I am even less the right shape and size and show even less aptitude.
