From 7 to 6

Today one of the boys decided not to come to the rehearsal. Teachers told us that he was escaping from the house when it was time to go to Zatoka. A combination of factors seem to lay behind his decision. His personality that is shaped by a very difficult family history and the influence in the children's home of some other boys that are not in the project. He had made such a big progress from the pilot project in January, when he often was hiding himself behind the chairs. Last week he was in general much more present and seemed to enjoy the work we did. But it was not enough to keep him on board. 

We continue the project with 6 instead of 7 children. A one on one situation with the same number of dancers as children in the piece.
