JON PETERSON: Pictures

The Royal Ballet School

Aged 14, from the book, "Life At The Royal Ballet School" by Camilla Jessel, which came out in 1978. She followed us all around for almost a year, camera in hand, and caught me one night skulking down a bottle of white in the laundry room.
1977, learning "Pineapple Poll" - sounds like a porn film...
1978. The Royal Albert Hall, London. I HATED Scottish dancing, ugh!  - On the left Ben Craft, who became a Ballet Rambert principle, & on the right,Bruce Sansom, soon to be RoyalBallet Principle. The budding hoofer is in the middle!
