  16. Japan has declared a state of emergency for the 3rd time in major cities such as Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Hyogo. Therefore, almost all performances were cancelled within a day's notice. There was a family ballet festival called Ueno no Mori Ballet Holiday scheduled next weekend but sadly this was cancelled, so the festival went online and there are several offerings provided. https://balletholiday.com/2021/online/ such as Tokyo Ballet's Giselle (excerpt) Asami Maki Ballet's Paquita https://vimeo.com/537602119 Asami Maki Ballet's Raymonda act 3 https://vimeo.com/537602119 Inoue Ballet's Nutcracker in full https://vimeo.com/537595463 Also National Ballet of Japan's Coppelia by Roland Petit performances were cancelled, but they are planning to have a streaming of the performance without audience for free, so I will add information later.

  20. Navirella is based on a Korean comic and the comic itself is fabulous, it makes me cry reading each episode. Gradually the reason why this 70 year old man is starting ballet at this age is revealed. (it will be a spoiler so I won't write but some readers might assume) The message of this story is so wonderful that you can still be beautiful by practicing ballet even if you are not going to be professional or are old or having handicaps. It is curious that most of the family members are not supportive of this man, so this story is something like a Billy Elliot old man version.
  21. English National Ballet has commented very early. Misty Copeland was one of the first to comment. https://www.instagram.com/tv/CNv9RgcDWB5/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link and a lot of dancers from Royal Ballet has paid tribute, as well as Manuel Legris (on his instagram story) Scarlett was from the class of 2005 at Royal Ballet school that has many talents, such as Xander Parish, Joseph Caley, Thomas Foster, Alexander Jones, William Moore, Aaron Robison.
