Principal Character Artist & Ballet Master with The Royal Ballet Company, Gary Avis, will be leading a one-day ‘Character Performance’ workshop for us with some extracts from Kenneth Macmillan’s Romeo & Juliet. Gary created roles for many of the world’s leading choreographers and has had the privilege of partnering many of the world’s great ballerinas, most notably a long dance partnership with Dame Darcey Bussell. Gary also performed with Darcey for the ‘Spirit of the Flame’ for the Closing Ceremony of the London Olympic Games. There’s just too much to say about Gary for this page, so you can read more about him here!
Here’s a taste of what Gary is offering to us at TYD this summer as he passes on his wealth of experience directly to us in all aspects of character building and performance.
