Product Description

Gillian Lynne is one of the world’s pre-eminent choreographers, the groundbreaking creative force behind blockbusters such as Cats and The Phantom of the Opera. But she started her career as a ballerina, leaning to dance alongside Margot Fonteyn, Moira Shearer, Beryl Grey and Frederick Ashton during the WWII. A Dancer in Wartime tells the story of Gillian’s extraordinary childhood from Miss Madeleine Sharp’s Ballet Class for Young Ladies in Bromley, to being evacuated with her theatre school to rural Leicestershire.
