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!
