While choreographing Cinderella throughout 2010, David Bintley recorded a number of studio sequences on his smartphone. These allowed him to review progress each evening, as well as during the summer break.

Here you can see some of this material for the very first time, along with footage shot by the Company Choreologist for archive purposes, and material from one of the very first full stage rehearsals, shot just days before the premiere.

David has also recorded an exclusive commentary for the sequence, which shows the Stars who appear to escort Cinderella to the Prince’s ball:
