December, 2001 — Daniel Keene came in for the holidays from London where he is a scholarship student at the Royal Ballet School. He is still as impressive as when he left here for Great Brittain in July. His time home was too short and he didn’t get to spend enough time with Mr. Ozsoy who was in Turkey when Daniel got home. To the delight of his former classmates, Daniel taught two classes while Mr. Ozsoy was gone. The studio is still in one piece, so I guess they enjoyed it. He is returning to London on January 5 to begin rehearsals for “Swan Lake” with the Royal Birmingham Ballet Company. He also danced in their “Nutcracker” before coming home for the holidays. It seems London agrees with him and he is enjoying his time there.
