12 May 2018 – Focal Meet the Ballerina: Isabel McMeekan

This is a special invitation to join us for an intimate evening’s conversation with Isabel McMeekan, former First Soloist with The Royal Ballet Company.

Isabel’s blog will tell you more about her …

Isabel will be talking about her career, her new role and how aspiring ballerinas can progress in the art.

She is also great company, funny and honest. We are absolutely thrilled that Isabel is going to share with us her incredible journey and career highlights and talking about the pressures, pitfalls and politics of being a ballerina. This is a backstage peek at what’s its really like to be a ballerina.

Isabel will be in conversation with Emilie McMeekan who is a journalist, who writes for a number of publications.  Here is a link to a recent article in the Daily Mail.

This event was originally planned for 19 May 2018 but we noticed that it would clash with a very important wedding date.  It is also rumoured that there is a football match on this day that some might want to watch.  We have therefore moved the event to:

Saturday 12 May 2018 from 7:30 pm at Christopher Rawlins Primary School

Tickets: £10.00 to include a glass of wine or soft drink;                           £6.00 for accompanied children to include a soft drink

Tickets from the library OR by e-mail from Keith Mitchell on krmcbe@gmail.com
