Upcoming trips in 2016
Some new trips added to the potential list. For the full list of upcoming trips, please click here: http://toursenlair.blogspot.ca/p/upcoming-ballet-trips.html

As always, PLEASE let me know if you are even potentially interested in/available for any of these trips. This is not a commitment. I do not mind if you say you're interested and then can't make the trip. At this point, it is a question of eliminating those trips that no-one expresses an interest in.
