Sir Anthony Dowell attended the Hampshire School where his partner in the school performance was none other than our principal Jane Scholl. Sir Anthony, as you all know, went on to have a fantastically successful career as principal dancer with the Royal Ballet and then as Artistic Director of the Royal Ballet for 15 years.
He still performs on stage most recently as one of the Ugly Sisters in Cinderella where he and Wayne Sleep were sensational.Jane sent him a rather unusual bouquet which caused a lot of amusement when it was presented on stage!

Who could this be?

This is a photo of Gilly Robinson when she was at the Royal Ballet School in a school performance of "Les Patineurs" at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in 1961. Her partner was Sir Anthony Dowell! Who are these?

You can imagine our surprise when we attended a performance of the Kirov Ballet at Covent Garden and were looking at the photos commemorating Sir Anthony's career in the foyer. Both these photos were on display and Jane and Gilly gasped as they recognised themselves!
