I am now a few weeks into my final Term of 2nd Year, enjoying the arrival of summer in our vibrant Covent Garden. Rehearsals at Upper School are becoming progressively more frequent and intense in preparation for our end of year performances. This year’s repertoire promises for an exciting range of works, varying from a great classic to more recent creations. So far I have been involved in Les Rendezvous, one of Frederick Ashton’s first substantial classical compositions. I am thoroughly enjoying the learning process of this choreography; working to embody Ashton’s distinct style and intricate movement. By presenting this piece, The Royal Ballet School & Company’s heritage is being maintained as a tribute to British ballet.

Summer Term 2015Along with the dance side of things, I am focusing on my A Level studies. Next week I have a lengthy French Speaking examination; I am glad that once that will be over I get to see the world premiere of Woolf Works, Wayne McGregor’s first full-length production for the Royal Ballet. Then in a few weeks time, I will have the last part of my French examinations, which will mark the conclusion of the two-year A Level course for this subject.

That is all for now as I must get back to doing my revision and weekend duties…

  1. Hi Prisca, I really enjoy reading your updates and following your progress. My wife and I were at the ROH on 29/4/15 to see La Fille mal Gardee. What an absolute delight ! Look forward to seeing you perform there one day as I am sure you will ! How did your dance exams go? Keep working hard and keep the updates coming. It will all be worth it in the end !
