Come to think of it, why not go? I am close enough.
DD and I discussed going to the European Broadcast Union (EBU) ballet competition which is held every other year. Swedish finals will be this coming
Saturday and Europe finals will be held in Poland. We dont know anyone in Warzaw, trouble with getting visas, expensive flying there etc. etc. So we decided
against it. But Helsinki is just a ferry trip away for us, perfect!
If we go I promise to send a detailed report - in the meantime I will report from
the Swedish competition on Saturday.
Most competitors come to nothing, but sometimes there is a true gem. I remember Zenaida Yanovsky, now with Royal Ballet. I first saw her in the EBU competition, she did an Esmeralda to die for, I still remember it and treasure my video.

Three soloists from the Estonian National Ballet, all very gifted dancers, were accepted to compete. I recognized a number of other names as well, some from U.S. companies like Boston Ballet and the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago, others from previous competitions. One young man from Kazakhstan, who tied for Bronze at Varna last summer, will also be competing. There are a few dancers from Finland whom I would like to see....all in all, quite a roster!
I'd love a detailed report, please!
I think the tickets have been on sale for some time already. You know how popular these competitions are.....
