Yes, Daisuke already announced that they're keeping Bayadere. Check out his Instagram.
LOL yes, I was wondering about that last week, before they announced on the 14th.

BTW there is a choreographer missing from the RD as both Dai and Kana wrote his name in Japanese. He is Koyo Yanai, a Japanese dancer, actor and choreographer who was also a member of the cast of Dai's Hyoen 2019.

Can't wait to see the new RD! :cheer2:

Thank you for providing his name in English. :)

In this June 14th article, his name machine translates to "Yasuhiro" Yanai (which is why I just copied out his name in Japanese ;)):

His Instagram profile is Koyo Yanai: https://www.instagram.com/koyoyanai/

I know! I initially made the same mistake even if I know who he is. LOL
