We are sorting out some official pictures but Jane Simpson took some candid snaps at the awards. She insists that any camera shake was the camera being too light (I think it was too close a proximity to Thomas Edur and Jonathan Cope myself!)

We have Darcey Bussell and Baroness Boothroyd - the Mistress of Ceremonies and a great job she did too - Tamara Rojo, Chrostopher Hampson and Dame Alica Markova...

   Critics Circle Dance Awards, 14 January 2003, Sadlers Wells

Sadlers Wells was awash with faces that you recognised at the Critics Circle Dance Awards ceremony on 14th January. Artistic, directors dancers, choreographers and many others….even a few familiar faces from ballet.co. There’s always a slight surprise finding yourself in quite a crowd and suddenly realising that yes, that is Alina Cojocaru standing right next to you and yes, and she really is as exquisitely tiny as that.

It was a very friendly and approachable crowd of people where it was perfectly possible to walk up to someone you had never met before and chat happily about ballet. Well, anyway, some of your ballet.co attendees talked to Ivan Putrov, there as a nominee for the Outstanding Young Male classical dancer, and I must report that he was unfailingly good humoured, informative and polite when asked about his appearances in the current triple bill at Covent Garden in which he appears in both Scenes de Ballet and Sinfonietta.

Baroness Boothroyd (perhaps better remembered as Bettie Boothroyd , former speaker of the House of Commons) acted as mistress of ceremonies for the occasion, keeping the announcements of the awards moving along at a brisk pace. She was as she reminded us rather impishly a Tiller Girl in days gone by (something she was rather more shy of mentioning when still in office). The presenters of the wards included an eclectic mix of the great and good of British dance, including Darcey Bussell, Dame Beryl Grey, David Bintley, Matthew Bourne, Paul Liburd of Rambert Dance Company, and Lady MacMillan. The final, rather lengthy address was from Dame Alicia Markova, before the De Valois award for outstanding achievement was presented to Christopher Bruce.

It was a lively and friendly occasion, enlivened by some performances in the foyer from students from the ENB School, Elmhurst Ballet School, and other schools. The younger children sat at the presenters feet during the awards ceremony looking quite charmingly awestruck. As a lively conclusion, the Jiving Lindy Hoppers burst into a lively routine. Protesting ballet critics were then sought out (“oh, no really, no. no, I couldn’t possibly”) and enticed on the floor to join in. Was the evidence captured on camera ? I do hope so (Brendan McCarthy- this means you !).

   The photo of Dame Alicia makes me realise that it was 10 years ago that I saw her - gosh she's aged. Wonderful that she's still with us, and able to do this kind of thing!

   Jane - not for a moment am I criticising your photographic skills, but that doesn't look remotely like Darcey! Are you sure it is?
