DANCE ‣ DANCERS OF THE MONTH, July-August 2023, ENB School, Graduating Class of 2023
Updated: Aug 18
This summer, we are celebrating the success of a whole class of young dancers. English National Ballet School celebrates its 35th anniversary this year and the yearly graduation performance under the direction of artistic director Viviana Durante offered a chance to see the future ballet greats. Students from all three year groups of the school present their artistry, skill, and variety in this specially chosen presentation.

The 2023 program 'La Sylphide', choreographed by former ENB Director and ENBS founder Peter Schaufuss and based on August Bournonville as well as a piece by the honoree Morgann Runacre-Temple, 'Of Space and Time' by ENBS Artistic Associate Andrew McNicol, and 'Flock' by Monique Jonas were among the recently commissioned contemporary works.
The program concluded with excerpts from the Balanchine favorite 'Who Cares?' presented by Deborah Wingert. The principal dancers and corps carried the presentation with brief partnerships. It was an excellent program and an opportunity to appreciate a stellar class of young dancers.
