Thursday 2nd

Arrived at studios to find the whole area, including the areas around the studios, overtaken by film crews and catering and lighting trucks. Apparently they are filming some movie here today but they will keep out of our way they promise. The studios used to be a monastery so they are very filmable of course.

We have our daughter with us today, so whilst Daria does Sofianes class I take Sabina with me to the Old Town Square and st Nicholas's Church to buy the tickets for tonights concert for the dancers. The are playing Mozart, Bach and Vivaldi at 21.00. And then on to top up my Czech mobile.

Gaynor Minden-1.jpgOnce I got back Jeanne Share, from Gaynor Minden shoes of New York, arrives to meet the Principal Dancers from the National Theatre here in Prague to show them her shoes, which you cannot get in the Czech Republic yet. She sets herself up in Studio 3 with lots of samples of what they do, and is immediately surrounded by dancers hoping to try or buy her wares. Unforunately for them this is not a selling trip, this is only to show everyone what they do. There is a lot of interest. We have visiting principal dancers from Staatsoper Berlin (Beatrice Knopp), Dutch National Ballet (Larisa Lezhnina) and Prague (Nikola Marova) all very interested. We always seem to get a lot of great dancers dropping in and out to say hello to Daria and enjoy the atmoshere of the studios and Prague. Daria has not seen Beatrice for 20 years since the competition in Lausanne.


This evening we interview the lovely Guillaume Graffin. Jonathan says that he has found an amazing swimming Centre about 20 minutes away on the tram. Apparently there are three 50m outdoor pools and a childrens pool and a grassy picnic area, it is not busy and only costs Kc100. So I shall take Sabina there after the Masterclasses.

The film will apparently be called "FAUBERG 36".
