Happy New Year...

I'm sure most ballet companies around the world have Nutcracker fever at the moment!  On Thursday evening we had our last performance of 2011 - though certainly not our last performance in the run of Nutcracker!  

After just finishing our morning ballet class, we are now officially on holiday and I can't wait to get on the aeroplane and see my family and friends at home.... it's been way too long and England is calling me!!

I hope everyone has an amazing New Year's Eve and here's a big cheers to 2012.

The Nutcracker run has began.  With seventeen performances from now until the end of January, we are all singing the famous Tchaikovsky music in our sleep.   Though I'm not complaining!!! I enjoy this ballet, as it brings such a Christmas feeling!

My snowflake costume hangs ready for me and below a Toi Toi gift - a very appropriate snowflake!!!

At least I get to run around in the snow on stage because as of yet the skies here are only bringing rain and no snow :(   I want to go sledging!!!

Rosalind - ing ....

This post has been sat in my draft box for the last week.  The theatre is so busy at the moment, that I often don't even have time to open my laptop.

Last week, we had our last performance of our new ballet 'Rosalinde', we have now moved onto the Christmas run of 'Nutcracker' and 'Rosalinde' will return next year.  The past week has been a hectic time of rehearsing (and for me being a newbie) learning the choreography of this particular version of Nutcracker......  Today is our dress run, tomorrow is my premiere and then we pretty much dance it until the end of January.

Rosalinde was fun to dance.  I love the costumes and the set was amazing.  Waltzing around to music by Strauss set a wonderful aura on the stage and I'll look forward to it returning soon :)

As for now my concentration lies with Nutcracker and of course Christmas  :)

Premiere Night...

As you all know after weeks of intense preparation, learning steps, costume fittings and stage rehearsals, last night we premiered our new ballet ''Rosalinde' choreographed by Ronald Hynd.
The show went down a storm, with a fabulous audience who clearly seemed to appreciate the whole piece.

Always after a premiere, the whole theatre gathers for a champagne buffet.  It's an opportunity for the dancers, orchestra, ballet staff, choreographers, costume designers and stage technicians to come together after the weeks of all the hard work that goes into staging a ballet.

I, unusually, left my choosing of an outfit until the very last minute......  I always feel at such an occasion that I would like something a bit special to wear.  
 Having not had the time to shop of late, in my break before the performance I dashed to Zara to buy something.  I had an idea in my head of what I wanted, but of course like always when I have an idea of what I want I can never find it!  So returning home empty handed, I raided my wardrobe and found this dress that I last remember wearing three years ago (this is when I'm happy that I hold on to things!)  With my black dinner jacket and my beloved Chanel bag, I was happy with the outcome and so was my bank balance!!!!!
