Yamile when you read what your TV and film stars are demanding for a film, Sergei-s wishes are nothing compared to them. They want to dance, and dance only togehter. suppose they know why.

Wish he would come dance in the U.S., but maybe it's true that he and his prima are too unreliable and demanding and that's one of the reasons they aren't being asked to dance in other places since they only want to dance together now.
Which is too bad, I know he has a lot of U.S. fans that would love to see him dance.
