Poll: Which company is currently at the cutting edge of British ballet?

10th April 2000

Birmingham Royal Ballet continues to be seen in the most positive of lights, one suspects for the overall roundness and mix of its programming so much as being 'cutting edge'. Of all the companies it's the only one that regularly tours triple bills wherever it goes though.


AMP is not a ballet company but it appeals to many in the ballet audience (and beyond) and in a way that no other dance company does. In this they would seem to have something to teach other companies be they ballet or dance based. And of course they don't cost tax payers a thing.


The Royal is the slumbering giant - given its massive subsidy it ought to do better. The new facilities and funding will help and Rome was not built in a day of course (or rebuilt in the case of RB).

   I'm not sure I have an obsession, so much as I see it as a way of introducing people to some possibly new things and also a way of bringing new choreographers through....
