Poll: Which decade do you think was most creative for ballet and dance in Britain?
29 May 2000
Well I'll warrant that few of us can remember ballet in the 30's!
But like the majority I think it was the time when British ballet was effectively defined - its our roots. And while we bicker, squabble and complain at times we have so much to be thankful for in our traditions.
The 60's of course was when ballet was very much in the wider publics imagination - Fonteyn and Nureyev and all that. Plus the choreography of both Ashton and MacMillan. I have to say I wish I had been there then.
