GHOSTS IN THE STUDIOS

Posted on 22 August 2018 By Rose Mulready

It's nearly time for Giselle ... how can we tell? Our rehearsal rooms are turning Romantic as the wilis drift in, all soft arms and white tulle. The moment when the wilis rise from their graves is captivating in the studio: when you add moonlight, mist and a forest glade, it's positively sublime.
