We met up with #bestfriendteacher @toril33walker for breakfast this morning, and Ben was soooo sleepy from his big adventure with Amelia that we almost lost him a few times. Lol. He perked up after a big breakfast, and we got some good photos. ;) When he got home, he found his package from #boysdancetoo waiting... and I had to capture him unwrapping his new dance belts. His new ballet teacher is on the way from ABT, and no more capri leggings & tees for this guy. Lol He took it like a champ. Then recovered by laying down awkwardly and playing on his phone. ;) @boysdancetoo @thekiddancer #benedict_the_dancer #danceteacher#topflightdance#dancersofinstagram
Thank you so much to the dancers of @amyblakedance and @flow40dance for this past week. Nothing makes me happier then to be able to travel and share my love of artistry in movement. To the dancers of Amy Blake: Know you are always enough, You are never less than, and each of you deserve to hold space in this world. From the bottom of my heart... thank you. . . . #dance#danceteacher#workharddancestrong#proud
Opening night at the ballet! Every year @mainestateballet puts on their annual showcase called “Dancer’s Choice.” As indicated by the name, the company dancers get to choose a piece to perform, along with an original work by our artistic director, which premiered in 1991, “Britten.” I’m honored and excited to be a part of the revival and to finally perform a variation I have been eyeing since I was a young student, “La Habanera” from Carmen Suite. I saw a YouTube video of @adisugar dancing this variation years ago, and finally have the performance opportunity (and technique 😂😋) to pull it off! Should be a fun evening.
