David Nixon taught class for the Dancers for the first time in 10 days so a bit of a shock to the system but essential to get them up to form for the opening night in Beijing tomorrow. As always the day was challenging. No lights on stage for class and no power for the electric piano. Eventually we found a cleaner’s socket in the auditorium and class got underway but not before David had to sing the first few exercises. Although David (and his wife Yoko Ichino) toured the world as dancers, this is his first ever visit to China. His verdict “I’m really glad I came” We took him to the Great Wall today which he found a very exciting , although strenuous experience. (Watch this space for David’s account of his visit to Beijing) Whilst we were away, the fit up continued in the Poly Theatre – again with its challenges but all will be fine for tomorrow’s opening.
