    Spanish inspired ballet music

    I learnt to play "Malaguena" on the guitar, and always imagined a dancer as I played it. Do you know it's been a while but I just might get the duster out, and give it another go. Have a look. https://youtu.be/8B6jOUzBKYc Oh by the way, I wasn't as good as this guy, he lost me after about a minute.

    Wow that's a heck of a question to answer, it depends on the individual I suppose. I have my own reasons, you could relate it to the topic Pointetoes, but I never intended to as it's there all the time. It's a line from a Bob Dylan song, who I've been very interested in for many years, "Love Minus Zero No Limit" look it up.

    I think you've hit the nail right on the head Pointetoes, they are all different. How one reacts to say an injury or an illness, will be totally different to how another does. it might make one homesick, and the other might be more resilient.

    Can finally get back onto this Forum !!

    I'm not too sure of the "almost crack proof Trog"
  5. I can only second Lisa's thoughts Harwel, no one should have to put up with that, shocking.

    Personally I think any talented dancer with dreams of performing with a company, should go all out for it. You only get one chance in life, it's not a dummy run, (wouldn't it be good if it was) and I can't think of anything more boring than saving for a property at such a young age. That's only my opinion mind, each to their own.
  7. My GDD did a couple of summer schools four or five tears ago, one year there were quite a lot of foreigners, and the other there weren't that many. I think one week is fine as they do work hard, like most she really enjoyed her stays.

    Are there any other Cricket Fans here?

    Yorkshire do have a great record in the CC, it's even better when you consider they wouldn't usually play anyone not born in the county. I think it was in the early 90's that they let an overseas player walk out, mind you he was probably the best there has ever been.

    I alway thought Royal US, was reasonably well supported, for families not on a high income.

    American teen relocating to London

    I'm pretty sure London Russian will take someone mid term, if they think they have enough talent of course.

    I came to a point where I had to make a decision, whether to carry on, or get off. I am glad to say, for me I made the right choice and waved goodbye, as life is far too short. It's a shame as there are a lot of good points, but far too much rubbish for me.

    Good Luck and Best Wishes

    I reckon there will be no end of DC's parents dashing around with last minute preps etc, before their children semi fledge the nest so to speak. We are having a get together tonight, to celebrate my granddaughter's 16th birthday, along with both her and her good friend, who also goes to VS in a week or so. I suggested buying train tickets to London, the week after they go, just to take all the things that will be forgotten, as I'm sure there will be a few.
