    A really interesting little clip! It amazes me how those young dancers can remember such intricate choreography! I was delighted to read recently that Luca and Marcelino had been promoted - I have watched their progress over the last few years and they richly deserve that progression in their careers. Both excelled in Carlos Acosta's "Don Quixote" and Luca was amazing in Hofesh Shechter's "Untouchable". Congratulations to you both!!
