Dame Monica Mason and Dame Darcey Bussell talked to the teachers at the Cecchetti Day hosted at the Royal Ballet School. They had many stories to recount regarding the production of Elite Syncopation, which was choreographed by Kenneth Macmillan and was one of his more light hearted pieces. I saw the ballet many years ago and loved it. It is being performed in April/May 2018 at the Royal Opera House.
Dame Darcey Bussell coached the dancers from the Royal Ballet company giving the demonstration, Mayara Magri and Nicol Edmonds.
Catherine Hutchon the Director of the Cecchetti Society thanks Dame Monica Mason and the Deputy Director Kate Simmons looks on with pride.
