Apparently I'm in short blurb-writing mode this week...
-I recently reconnected (via Facebook!) with an old ballet teacher of mine (who, I must be honest, I was honored even remembered me since I didn't have him often back then). He has a gala performance coming up this Thursday on Long Island. I won't be able to go, but for any of you Long Islanders out there who might be able to make it please let me know how it goes! NYCB principal Daniel Ulbricht is performing, apparently!
-TAKE Dance is having the premiere of their documentary "A Year With TAKE Dance" this Sunday. I'm really looking forward to this one, especially after working with them at the intensive in January.
I actually ran into Take and Jill this afternoon on my way to take class. Later this week I'm also attending an open rehearsal for their upcoming DTW season (report to come!).
Oh speaking of running into people, at the same time I saw them I also saw the dance captain of my cast of Rockettes today :) Nice to see her. I love how small the dance world is, especially in New York!
-Dance Brazil is performing this weekend (check out their new website here) and will be webstreaming their March 22 7pm performance live online here. Cool.
-As for my own upcoming performances...
March 29 I'll be in another extension student showcase at Ailey, in the theater this time :) I'm doing an article about our preparations, which I'll get done later this week for more details. But if you're interested in coming you can buy tickets for the 4:30pm here or 7pm shows here. We're doing excerpts from Bournonville's "Napoli" (yay!) and "Les Sylphides" (not so yay), plus a bunch of other small modern companies are on the program and guest stars Les Ballets Grandiva.
The following week, April 4th & 5th I'm doing a pas de deux in a show at Ballet Arts that a friend of mine choreographed. Should be fun.
