The competitive world of ballet | Stage | The Observer.

Great article on the make-up and elimination process of the Royal Ballet Academy. Considers homegrown versus international students, ratios of such in company and impact on British dance. Though thought provoking, what many of us imagined. Unknown to us was that other schools, besides the Bolshoi, are nearly fully comprised of students from their own countries, while the Royal Ballet calls ballet “poaching” good policy and ballet a “global marketplace.”
