Darcey Bussell backstage at the Royal Opera House

Final Curtain Call - Darcey Bussell

"You will take a bow and the audience will clap....hopefully..." - Marina Levasheva

Autumn Leaves, 1984 “I remember this as being the first time I was really noticed whilst in my last year at White Lodge,aged 15. A fellow pupil,Michael Rolnick,created a lovely, slow & lyrical piece that belied his age,for the school’s choreographic evening. Despite being White Lodgers, we were asked to perform it at The Royal Ballet Upper School, which is unheard of. I was amazed that some of the eighteen year old students complimented me on the quality of my dancing.” Darcey Bussell Collection

When ever I can't do something in ballet, if it is en point or grade work, I think of Darcey Bussell.
