feeling dancy and twirly. 

last thursday i went with a friend to the american ballet theatre's perform of giselle here in chicago. our giselle that night was played by none other than julie kent, the phenomenal principal dancer for abt for over 2 decades.  she practically floated around the stage.  you might remember her as kathleen from center stage - if you'll admit to liking that movie as much as i do!  

i was, and still am, in awe of her.  julie is 43, with 2 kids.  i don't think i have to tell you how rare and special that is for a prima ballerina's career.

  2. So many things to say. First of all - Julie Kent is my favorite ballerina ever to grace the stage. I fell in love with that movie ions ago or so it seems. Lucky you. Second - I love the first image. Like major love. And third - Giselle is gorge isn't it? I saw her in Swan Lake. Breath taking.
