Following Swan Lake’s disastrous 1877 Moscow premiere, which devastated Tchaikovsky, the ballet went on to triumph in St Petersburg in 1885 with new choreography by Petipa and Ivanov, confirming its composer’s genius and creating a worldwide success which continues to attract choreographers such as Matthew Bourne. This course is fully illustrated with slides, archive film clips and DVDs.

She has combined a career in retail, PR, arts management and interior design with work as dance adviser to Southern Arts Association, and as founder of Southampton Dance Circle.

As a film-maker, I travel the world but few places offer such repose, intellectual stimulation and comfort. I can't wait to come back. My hat is most certainly off to all the hard-working team at Dillington. Their commitment to high quality service and programme innovation is truly remarkable. I thoroughly recommend it!
