A big thank-you to Jackie Barrett (assistant and ballet mistress for choreographer Christopher Wheeldon) for making this happen!

Mr. Carney and Jackie Barrett trained together full-time at the Royal Ballet School and then went on to dance for several years together in English National Ballet (then called London Festival Ballet).
