The Show Must Go On!

Last night was a blast ! It was such a beautiful experience to see such amazing ballet dancers from all the different ballet companies. Their technique was jaw-dropping, I really could not take my eyes off of the beauty each of them portrayed.

 I remember my first big performance was when I had the chance to dance with Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker. I had a small part as a "Party Child" in the Nutcracker, yet it was a huge deal for me. I sat backstage far away from the wings yet I could hear the slight taps of pointe shoes hitting against the wooden floor as the professional dancers ran to take their positions on the stage. From afar, I would greatly admire the principals as they paced back and forth or stretched their legs up in the metal bars that aligned the backstage area.

It's truly an entirely different world backstage. Anything and everything always goes wrong. Hair pieces are lost, ballet shoes are misplaced, buttons and stitches undo themselves, someone enters from the wrong side of the stage. All these things happen yet the audience never finds out. The show must go on! Once you take your position on stage, everything that went wrong is all of a sudden fixed. It was a mystical world that I knew I wanted to be a part of, that's when my appreciation for this art commenced.

As I sat in the audience last night, I could see glimpses of the dancers waiting to go on stage within the stage's wings. It filled me with such joy (I might have shed a tear or two) because I knew exactly how they felt as excitement and anticipation built up in their stomachs. This brought me back to the memories of that little girl backstage admiring them. It's an incredible feeling to be up there. Words can't describe it.

I've decided to include this photo shoot I did a couple of months ago to show my lovely readers a glimpse of my dance side :)

                                                      And now, Last night's event...
