Sorry to use such a public forum for this but really its for those of you who contact me on Ballet Association business. I have resigned from the committee of the Ballet Association and therefore any correspondance should now be entered into via the Association website. Those of you who have read my comments in this forum and others will realise that I am rather critical of the present management of the Royal Ballet. The Ballet Association is a neutral, uncritical organisation designed to give support to the company. I felt that I could no longer air my views freely and serve as a committee member, therefore I have stood down so that there can be no possibility of thinking that my opinions are in anyway those of the Association. I will continue to be a member and give the Ballet Association and its committee every help and support in their excellent programme of meetings.
