The London Ballet Circle was pleased to host an insightful evening in conversation with Laurretta Summerscales, a celebrated former principal of the English National Ballet, and dance writer Deborah Weiss. Laurretta, who began her ballet journey in Surrey, opened up about all aspects of her career, from her early days at her mother's school to her pivotal moments on stage, such as her performance in Swan Lake at the Albert Hall. She also spoke about her leap to the Bavarian State Ballet in 2017, a move that marked a significant chapter in her career, expanding her repertoire and experience.

Laurretta also commented on how motherhood has reshaped her approach to dance, lending a deeper emotional dimension to her performances. She also touched upon the practicalities and joys of juggling her roles as a mother and a dancer. 

Susan Dalgetty Ezra, Chair of the LBC, wrapped up the evening, thanking both Laurretta and Deborah for a truly captivating and inspiring conversation.
