Another parent or two popped in to see us today so I showed them around the studios. It is always impressive for them, it is such a lovely old building with modern facilities. an old monastery very close to the river in the heart of the city. Solos today is for the final time with Evgenia Obratsova, the beautiful Bolshoi prima Ballerina, who is a fantastic coach, for the girls in studio 2 with Jonathan Still on piano. The boys are with the big tall man Vladimir Shishov, former Kirov star who now dances with Vienna Staatsoper Ballet under the direction of Manuel Legris from Paris Opera, in Studio 1 with Sergei Poluektov on piano. I am sure that they will realise one day in the future just how lucky they were to have been here with these stars. This is Evgenia’s final class moments.
