    Poor Lamb, whom I can't ever remember cancelling through injury before. Let's hope it's not so serious as to keep her off stage for any significant length of time, and that she makes a full and speedy recovery.

    Well done to Akane for stepping in at such short notice to make a debut in such a challenging lead role! Wishing Sarah a speedy recovery.

    I'm so shocked about Sarah's injury. She is my fav ballet dancer.

    Get well soon Sarah, and really looking forward to seeing you dance again.

    I wish Miss Lamb a safe and speedy recovery. I hope she's back on the stage in her top form as soon as she's able.
