''We tried to stage a bright, emotional show, which is actually conquering the world today. Some people accuse this ballet of too much eroticism but when we show Anna's feelings, her immersion into the hell of passions we cannot do without erotic dance.''

Most of the children in the photos were orphaned by Cyclone Nargis in 2008. I had 20 students in the class and they all live and study at the school in very basic conditions.
I hadn’t expected to teach and arrived totally unprepared, so I used an interpreter initially with lots of miming! I was amazed at how enthusiastic and grateful the children were. They have virtually no material possessions, no xboxes etc, yet they are happy. It really was a joy to see! Teaching at PDO was such an incredible, moving experience that I will never forget. The kids loved being introduced to ballet, classical music, creativity and exercise. I really hope to go back to teach again very soon.”
