I’m afraid I went so ballerina-centric that I did not mention the excellent job done in the Moscow competition by dancers from Japan:
Japanese dancers, after all, have a major presence in ballet companies worldwide. My problem is that I don’t generally look at a ballet dancer as Asian, Caucasian, Black or whatever. (And I don’t pay a great deal of attention to the men, I admit that.)
Also congrats to China and Argentina. My bad for not mentioning this earlier. I’ll be back when I stop kicking myself around the block.
