"The Neglected Spring"
Royal Danish Ballet
October 26 2011
The present aspirant class of RDB is probably the biggest class for several generations. Many of the students, most notably Ida Prætorius have already had featured roles or done significant corps assignments. For the previous two seasons an annual production based on aspirants and first years dancers have performed on the smaller Drama House stage and done some touring to schools. There is a double agenda for these projects, to build a younger audience and to kick start the young dancers stage experience.
This year's project also managed to present probably the greatest choreographer talent from the company ranks.
