To honor David Wall’s dancing career, here’s a video of him dancing with Alessandra Ferri in Chanson, choreographed by Derek Deane, former director of English National Ballet.

  1. A brilliant red-headed star of the Royal Ballet, Wall’s qualities of polished grace and exceptional dramatic acting ability helped establish the worldwide reputation of English dance for sweeping away the artifice of ballet “acting” and exploring demanding emotional situations in a naturalistic way.

  2. This pas de deux “Chanson” danced by Alessandra Ferri and David Wall was “not” in fact choreographed by Kenneth MacMillan as stated,,,but by me… I choreographed it for a television dance documentary and then it was performed at several galas and at the Royal Opera House……

    • Dear Derek,

      My apologies! I’ve corrected the article, giving you credit for the choreography.

      Thanks for clearing this mistake.

      Kind regards,
