'Ashton Rediscovered' masterclasses 2019-20

The 'Ashton Rediscovered' and 'Ashton Revisited' series of masterclasses features recreated, rarely performed and revisited works by Frederick Ashton, the masterclasses being given by original cast members or by later leading cast members. Introduced by Jane Pritchard MBE, Curator of Dance at London's Victoria & Albert Museum, and featuring dancers of The Royal Ballet, each masterclass includes an Introduction and Q&A and is followed by a reception. The masterclasses are normally filmed for educational and research purposes.
