BW Sponsors English National Ballet Dancer
BW: Workplace Experts is delighted to announce its sponsorship of English National Ballet dancer Claire Barrett.
Claire grew up in Cape Town, South Africa and moved to the UK to train with English National Ballet School. Upon graduation in 2017, Claire joined English National Ballet and has since danced with the company in productions including Nutcracker, La Sylphide, Akram Khan’s Giselle, and Pina Bausch’s The Rite of Spring.
English National Ballet has a long and distinguished history. Founded in 1950 as London Festival Ballet by the great English dancers Alicia Markova and Anton Dolin, it has played a major role in the growth and history of ballet in the UK. English National Ballet has an international reputation for excellence and BW is thrilled that its sponsorship will contribute to investing in the future of ballet worldwide.
The 3 year sponsorship comes after BW was appointed to manage the fit-out of English National Ballet and English National Ballet School’s new joint home in Canning Town, East London. The 93,000 sq ft development will be located at London City Island, a new neighbourhood from Ecoworld Ballymore.
