Every year in November Swedish TV treats us to an entire evening of dance -

This year the theme was modern, entirely modern. Mostly things I had already seen and didnt want to give a second viewing.

For example, there was this old pas de deux with Mikhail Baryshnikov and Ana Laguna (wife of Mats Ek). I dont know if I have mentioned this before, but Laguna is elevated to the rank of "Court dancer". This title is very old, from the court of king Gustavus III in the 18th century. It is solely an honorary title, very seldom conferred.

Second part of the evening got better, it was the farewell performance of the group Bounce. Although it is (was) a modern company - street dance - hip hop - rock'n'roll, they had vitality, verve, musicality and an enormous energy, always enjoyable. I, and I am not alone in my opinion, think they ought to have carried on in stead of disbanding.
