FRANCE — Full house: A Ukrainian dancer of the Kyiv City Ballet company waited backstage during a performance at the Théâtre du Châtelet, in Paris, on Tuesday. The Kyiv City Ballet danced to a full house in Paris for the last show of a French tour that left the company stranded after the war broke out in Ukraine. They described being physically and emotionally exhausted. Being given the opportunity to train and dance was, for many, a chance to focus on something other than the war.
