What a Day!

Wow, I had an insane, wonderful day!

This morning I went to work early (yes, started a new part time job this week, which is another story) and left in time to take a quick barre to warm up for an audition.

The barre (which I ended up staying for center because it was so fabulous) was with Gelsey Kirkland. The audition was with in-the-hot-seat choreographer Alexei Ratmansky.

Ahhhh!

To make a long story short (I'll elaborate tomorrow afternoon when I have more time) I got a call back for tomorrow with the Metropolitan Opera Ballet in in the brand new production of "Aida" choreographed by Ratmansky! Wish me luck tomorrow - I NEED IT. That's about the only stage that compares with Radio City Music Hall!

Really nice blog - enjoy reading about all of your adventures -here, on twitter & over @ The Winger.

All my best wishes, to a lovely young lady -- you are living my long-lost dream, in a way!

Remember to take a moment: stop and take a breath, connect in to your heartbeat, and savour that increment in time - and know that people are routing for you!! :)
