Hello!How are you? I watch Le Songe Dvd with Les ballets de monte carlo and was very moved.It's a pity that I cannot see many splendid dancers like you,Daria Ivanoba and Mariko Kida at Live. I hope you will come back home to Japan with your company in a few year, if possible.By the way,sweden is far away from Japan. You have lived in that country for about ten years.From Monte-Carlo to Sweden,How beautiful life and day it is!

MA: I hope you are well, I often think off you and would like you to know how proud we are at your success. I am building new studios across from the Brunton Theatre and very much hope you will visit them when you are home next time. We are also working on a new web page at the moment and would very much like to use a couple of photos from you. I realize you were not with us very long but so many of the children and mothers especially from North Berwick ask about you therefore it would be nice to have some of your recent photos as we have the one when you were about 11 years of age holding onto a chair and the one your mum sent me when you left the Royal.

SJM: Hello Morag, it was so nice to see your comments. I am hoping to get home this Xmas for a few days ( first time in five years!!!). If I have time I will pop in to see you. I will send some recent photos as soon as I can.
Great news about the new studios, I would love to see them.
All best wishes Sarah Jane xx
