Ricardo Cervera, First Soloist, The Royal Ballet:

"Sir Frederick Ashton has had a very strong influence shaping The Royal Ballet's unique style. I admire his sense of musicality, the quick footwork and in particular the expressive and stylised movement of the upper body. His work is very challenging but I personally find it hugely rewarding."
