It's Thursday afternoon, so here is a little bit of ballet artwork to see you through the day. These wonderful Cleopatra and Cinderella sketches are from our very own Olivia Holland.
Last night after the performance our small group of Pop-upers had dinner together as a farewell to Hangzhou and to celebrate the great success of the 2 performances. It was great to see the Cleopatra pas de deux again.
Last week two of the our dancers, Maria Beseghi and Olivia Holland, switched occupation for a day to be models in a luxury fashion photo-shoot with Harvey Nichols and Yorkshire Post. We took lots of snaps to give you a behind-the-scenes look at just what the dancers got up to.
