Dance on Twitter
Posted on October 25, 2010
It’s been a busy dance week, with hard work and celebrations both being reported on Twitter.
Phoenix Dance Theatre and Northern Ballet have moved into their new building in central Leeds:
@PhoenixLeeds: Off downstairs in our new building in a bit for a glass of champagne with @NorthernBallet to celebrate the fact we’re all finally here!
Birmingham Royal Ballet is revealing details of David Bintley’s new Cinderella, from casting – Marion Tait as the Stepmother, hurray! – to footwear:
@BRB: New on the Cinderella blog – No glass slipper! http://www.creatingcinderella.com/2010/10/shoes/
Wayne McGregor is at work on his new dance FAR, for Random Dance | Wayne McGregor. Some of it sounds painful:
@WayneMcGregor: Our youngest dancer, Louis McMiller, fresh from the #Royal Ballet School, is suffering from “McGregor Neck”!!!
Finally, some of our 100th birthday party guests have been tweeting.
The Royal Ballet’s Lauren Cuthbertson:
