January 2014

Well, here we are at the turn of another year, and everyone at Dancing Times would like to wish all our readers a very happy 2014. I like to think that this issue of the magazine is a kind of mini tribute to Birmingham Royal Ballet (BRB), that much-loved company with its legions of admirers.

Birmingham Royal Ballet, Swan Theatre, High Wycombe – May 21, 2013

Birmingham Royal Ballet's "split-tour" nomenclature suggests a glass half empty. Its notion of "south west" is misleading too, extending to the doorstep of London – to High Wycombe. The company – well this half of it – looked fresh and danced with typical verve. In cash tight times, this half-pint tour delves into BRB's back catalogue and economically creates more outings for ballets recently performed. Pint glass full, there were no short measures for the Wycombe audience.
