Our First Few Days
We are visiting museums & castles, meeting dancers from all over the world. Rehearsals started in the hotel meeting room for two days, then at the theater for spacing rehearsals and lighting. Below are some photos of rehearsals and sightseeing trips. The culture and beauty of this city is wonderful. We will not be able to send pictures of rehearsals or performances in the theater as photography is not allowed in the theater.
