The busy Autumn season of dance included a premiere from the Ballets de Monte-Carlo and a packed Festival of Dance in Cannes, all reviewed by Christina in the Dancing Times and on www.DanceTabs.com. This has been followed by the usual lull in dance activity while we spent some time in Switzerland and continue to make new discoveries in the many galleries and museums scattered along the Mediterranean. We both continue to work on our writing projects which involves considerable research, into 19th century Australia and 20th century Germany.
