It was a good sight to watch renowned principal dancers up close and personal... Prior to this event, a similar Royal Ballet In Class was featured 2 weeks ago. In that class, some of the dancers which failed to attend the 17th May class were: Steven McRae, Alexandra Ansanelli, Jose Martin, Jaimie Tapper, Ernst Meisner, Yuhui Choe, Leanne Cope, Celisa Diuana and Pietra Mello-Pittman. And the other class, in January, which I've seen, had Sylvie Guillem, Martin Harvey.
