A little bit about Rudik
All our family and friends adore ballet so Rudik`s visits to o our home were indeed not just pleasant, but also very interesting. As I remember him, he was an extremely modest young men dressed — as we later discovered — in the best clothes he owned at the time: a black and white wide-sleeved woollen overcoat.
