Congratulations to the cast and crew of The Hammond's production of 'Giselle'. The production by Sir Peter Wright CBE was staged by Senior Hammond Dance Teacher, Jane Elliott. The ballet was performed by a selection of talented dancers from Year 10 and our Post-16 Diploma Course who worked alongside visiting principals on six shows that wowed audiences. Visitors from the English National Ballet and Karlsruhe State Ballet, Jeanette Kakareka and Harriet Mills, danced the role of Giselle alongside Jinhao Zhang and Flavio Salamanka as they performed the role of Albrecht.
It was especially wonderful to have Harriet Mills, an ex-Hammond student, back performing in The Hammond Theatre. Harriet had a wonderful time reliving her school days and catching up with her former teachers. Now an industry professional, Harriet was generous with time for current students, offering advice and wisdom gained since leaving The Hammond.
As always, we'd like to thank you for your continued support of our productions and the support you give our students to allow them to flourish whilst completing their training in the multiple disciplines undertaken at The Hammond.
