Sorry, another really busy day, trying to cajole all the dancers into finding out if they need tests before they go home. Of course it is more than a week away so they see no urgency, but of course it will take a week to organise which they don’t think about. I don’t want them turning up at the airports to discover that their country insists on a test to enter and be sent away or miss flights etc etc.

This afternoon Daria Klimentová is taking PDD with Jason Reilly in studio 1 with Serghei Poluektov on piano and Ondrej Vinklat is in studio 2 for contemporary class.

The dancers seem to be settling in nicely and getting used to the heavy workload. The canteen was very busy today now that they realise how convenient and cheap it is. A hot meal for £4 or €5.
