Mathias is mentioned in DANCE EUROPE Magazine!

Today the mailman brought Dance Europe Magazine. Each month there are reviews of performances held all over the world. Birmingham Royal Ballet is often reviewed, and this month was no exception. Mike Dixon, a regular contributor to various dance publications and groups, saw the same performance as did Steve...the triple bill in York: Concerto Barocoo/Twilight/Take Five.

I'm not going to type out the entire review...just the last paragraph!

"Bintley's Take Five to the music of Dave Brubeck, however, shows the company in confident form. Mathias Dingman fizzing through the Flying Solo with Broadway élan; Jenna Roberts and Tyrone Singleton silkily poised in Two Steps; and Dingman, Steve Monteith, Christopher Rodgers-Wilson and Tom Rogers clapping their own accompaniment to Four Square produced the most enthusiastic applause of the afternoon. This is a strong piece to close a show and demonstrates David Bintley's talent for building interesting and provocative programmes."

Coming up later this month and into July, the company will be performing Giselle and another triple bill, Stravinsky: The Real Deal. After two weeks in their home theater, the Hippodrome, in Birmingham, the company moves both shows to the Lowry in Manchester....where Steve and I are going! I can't believe we're flying back to England again....but....hey, we aren't saving for anyone's college education!
