The quite wonderful Richmond May Fair has been held today on The Green.
Some of the pupils from White Lodge, the lower school based in Richmond Park, dazzled and danced their way through morris dancing, Irish dancing, clog dancing, Scottish dancing, a Farandole, the chicken dance from La fille Mal Gardee, an excerpt from Sleeping Beauty and the party dance from The Nutcracker to finish. All the pupils were brilliant; accomplished and confident.
I hope you enjoy a few of the photo's from the show.
The weather was an improving picture and there was a large audience cheering and whooping after every dance. The children of all ages in the audience were enraptured, as were the adults.
Well done to everyone and if you spot yourself in the pictures, please do let me know who's who so that I can add the detail - unfortunately we didn't get a performance sheet.
