Hard At Work

Feeling a wee bit ‘under the spotlight today, like this crew of young ballet boys…


…sadly, apart from Leo and Jaymee, we’re all somewhat older these days…

In Toronto yesterday in plenty time to watch the show with just the six existing members of our happy band, and to check we have correctly worked out how to integrate Dave, myself and the two young ones. We have six more minutes in each half for the duration of our visit – and one of those slots will more or less be taken up with Leo and Jaymee doing their balance routine while Dave and I just augment the others. In the second half we all join in with the general fakir-based acrobatics – impressed with Gary’s latest ‘trick’ which is a full splits on the nail bed with Zach balancing on one arm on his head. I’ll try and snatch a picture later this week.

Right now it’s just been an hour convincing the management that we know what we’re doing, and coming up next, a heap of rehearsal training with the rest of the team, which is now ten instead of six. First public performance is at 3pm.

Biggest issue for us is that, while the rest of the gang are currently ‘bunking’ with Jack’s parents, who have always been amazing supporters, there’s no more room and so Dave and I and the kids spent the night in our tour bus huddling together to keep warm. Later this week, the others are going to join us because the host family have other family coming to stay over the festive weekend – so that extra body heat should help us all to survive the Canadian snows!

Just time to post a bunch of pictures – general gym training and results again, I’m afraid; some faces you may recognise – and to mention the books (in which Jack’s family feature):
