Masterclass with Roberta Marquez

Some of our dancing members who are students of Hazel Smith at the Central School of Dance and Drama in Brentwood were lucky enough to attend a Masterclass with the Royal Ballet’s Principal Dancer Roberta Marquez last Sunday. Lucy Apicella-Howard, Marquezlowres4Charlotte and Victoria Abbott and Scarlett Mann participated and benefited from class, repertoire and a Q & A session. Apparently Princess Aurora is one of Roberta’s favourite roles; Scarlett Mann who has been cast as Aurora in our March production of “The Sleeping Beauty” was given useful advice in preparing to dance the Rose Adage.
