Stacey - I'm contacting you from an Australian Production Company - we are making a documentary for the ABC about the Ballets Russes tours to Australia - I wonder whether you recognise these 2 images - we are trying to source higher res images for the film - can you get back to me via email please:

Hi Stacey - I did my training with the British Ballet Organisation and RAD in London - then continued my studies with both organisations when my family moved to New Zealand - I have Advanced in both RAD and BBO for ballet - and Advanced BBo tap - I have been interested in dance history for some time - mostly Biographies as I found so many names in various books with different accounts that I started collecting all information - I probably have something like 10,000 names at least which I keep adding to - although I am thinking of doing them in 2 sections those born prior to 1900 and those after as there is just so much information of our new dancers - I prefer the older ones this is where the greatest conflicting informations are. I also have sections for Ballets and Ballet companies - which is why I am interested in your site. Anything you can do to help would be of great assistance - may be one day I will put it all on a DVD for others - SO far I have found this to be a great site keep it up well done - Cheers Wendy
