   Doesn't say much we don't already know - except that he'll be appearing in "Casualty" this weekend!

Key paragraph: "I am 41 now but my dancing days are not yet over.......In the ballet I have said nearly everything I want to say. I still feel very confident- I am better than many young dancers - but I would rather do something new than a role I have been dancing for 22 years. So now I turn to acting......." and he says that he was much better looked after on the set of Casualty than he is at the ROH!

   There was something in the Guardian yesterday about a row about the proposed return of Pavlova's ashes to Russia from their current resting place in north London. The Guardian site seems a bit slow at present, but when it's back to normal it might be possible to track this down.
