course load was very high. After all, it was necessary to quickly change, adapt to a new dance, nothing in the way not to lose from a variety of (sometimes metal) parts of costumes.
But, as they say themselves dancer, touring in Spain have become for them an excellent vocational school.
And the impression of an unforgettable visit. Leaving with a tour of Madrid, the girls came to prefer the Spanish royal feast. And in the old Toledo lyubovalis castles and temples, which in this city of more than a hundred.
