Sadler’s Wells

We’re currently sat in the Lilian Baylis studio preparing for tonight’s performance.  The kids are hard at work rehearsing, Ramzan is putting them through their paces, Aiza is making last minute adjustments to costumes and the girls are ironing out the creases.  The performance tonight is almost sold out, so we’re hoping for a full house.

I’ve been with Daimohk since Thursday and I’m astounded at how much energy they have!  Bringing them here and hosting them is such a huge undertaking, but seeing them running around, laughing and playing I’m reminded how important this visit is.  Yes, they are amazing dancers, but first and foremost they are kids.  Hopefully coming on tour allows them the space to play around free from worry.

On Tuesday the group conducted a master class at Kings Langley School ahead of their excellent performance.  We were lucky enough to have a journalist from the BBC come along and film it.  Russian speakers can check out the film on the BBC Russian website.

Thanks so much to everyone who has pitched in to make this happen – our caterers, people in the press, everyone coming to the shows.  It means a lot that Daimohk are getting the profile that they deserve.

Right – two hours until show, time to do some last minute work!  See you later!

Postponed Daimohk date

Our staff in Bude and partners in Chechnya and Moscow have been working tirelessly over the past few weeks to ensure that all of the Daimohk group receive visas to travel in the UK and to their performances in France.  No mean feat!  Unfortunately delays in this process have meant that the first date, 7th July at Michael Hall School will be postponed.  We are currently trying to re-arrange this date with them and hope to give you news on this as soon as possible.
