Today we have Vadim Muntagirov in Studio 2 with Jonathan Still on piano. When Daria walked in with him there was a big round of applause. Isabelle Ciaravola is with the girls in studio 1 with Sergei Poluektov on piano.

It does amuse me that every time I stroll into a class and call out someone’s name there is silence, and then nothing happens. Then just as I am leaving someone will run up to me and say quietly that it’s them. Either they think they have done something wrong or are just shy. They have never done anything wrong, I just normally need information from them or have to give them information.
