Ballet's the best thing for making action sketches, even if it's dark and there's never time to draw more than a few lines of each figure. (Here are some sketches I made earlier in the year of adult dancers... oh! And photos of me in pink ballet gear, ha ha.)
The kids all dressed as different sweets. (Dulcie was a Rhubarb & Custard boiled sweet, something I don't think we ever had in America.)
After the show, the star of the ballet, her mother and I had a celebratory hot chocolate while she watched the video I'd shot.
