It’s very pleasing to see 10 countries again as part of our event. We know that many broadcasters, and especially cultural departments, are having a hard time at the moment so to have ten with us in Pilsen supporting Young Dancers is very positive. Česká televize is preparing an excellent show, and I am sure everyone watching will enjoy it immensely.
