An Evening with Robert Parker and Friends
This was the 6th evening in the series, initiated in 2011. Our very own Robert Parker, accompanied by the vivacious Marion Tait and Birmingham Royal Ballet senior soloist Johnathan Payne, treated The Friends of Elmhurst and Yr7 to a masterclass in mime and storytelling. This year’s chosen ballet was the David Bintley classic, Hobson’s Choice. It was extremely insightful and entertaining to watch as the five enthusiastic sixth formers learnt a short section of mime from
the ballet. In addition, the professional tips and anecdotes from our wonderful teachers made the evening hugely enjoyable for all.
