‘I am delighted to welcome Reece and Gina to The Royal Ballet,’ says Kevin O’Hare, Director of The Royal Ballet. ‘Over the past year we have taken seven students from The Royal Ballet School into the Company and this is testament to the close relationship between the Company and school. We look forward to watching them develop in their careers as professional dancers over the forthcoming seasons.’
