Surrounded by the magnificent furnishings and glorious art collection of the Wallace Collection, the 1st and 2nd year students of the English National Ballet School showed off their choreographic talents to the great delight of the attendees.

For the past four years, the students have gained inspiration from something in the collection and then interpreted it through dance. There were solos danced in four of the rooms and group performances were presented The Great Gallery. It was fascinating to see the work presented in the room where the object was located, for example the sunflower-shaped chandelier in the Front State Room, the painting of Marie Camargo in the Dining Room and a suit of armour in the Arms and Armour III room.

Twenty-one works, a mixture of classical and contemporary, were danced to recorded music. The students collaborated with London College of Fashion on their costumes and the make-up was superb. The long and enthusiastic applause at the conclusion of the evening told the students how impressed we all were with their work and how much we had enjoyed it.
