Q&A with Lesley

How long have you been working in Mayfair?
 
I’ve been working in Mayfair for 10 years now
 
What is your favourite spot in Mayfair?
 
Brown Hart Gardens - it’s next to Danceworks of course, and it’s an iconic open space that Grosvenor refurbished beautifully. We have had world renowned photographers working with international ballet stars using the space as a backdrop! Our customers and staff love to sit up there for a break when the sun’s shining.
 
What is one of your proudest moments from your current role?
 
When our lovely young Academy dancers aged from 5 to 18 (many from economically deprived homes on our scholarship programme) gave a stunning ballet performance in one of our studios to the Minister for the Arts & Culture and other VIPs - and to see how moved they all were. 
 
What is something great about Mayfair which everyone should know?
 
It’s one of the best places to walk around in London, full of lovely buildings and green spaces.
