"Ann Jenner"
   Someone recently posted a message asking for information about Ann Jenner.
I spoke to her on the 'phone today: she's teaching at the Australian Ballet School, and simultaneously studying for a degree. She was thrilled to know that she is still remembered over here.
She was one of my own favourite dancers: someone you were always pleased to see come on stage, and who never gave a bad performance. The Royal Ballet, I'm afraid, grieveously underused her.

In response to message #0
   I am thrilled that she was thrilled! (I posted the original message.)Of course she is remembered, by everyone who saw her, I'm sure. I do agree that she was appallingly underused by the RB. I never understood it, because she was adored by the audiences. But there were so many brilliant dancers at that time - Sibley and Seymour, Merle Park and of course Fonteyn still very much around. So there was a lot of competition. Careers are so much affected by circumstance as well as talent.
