When I was very young I wore a tutu everywhere, at 12 years old I danced in a version of Prokofiev's Cinderella with ballerina Kimberly Glasco, choreographed by Vanessa Harwood (both prestigious members of the Toronto dance community via the National Ballet of Canada). I was convinced that's what I'd grow up to be! [laughs] While I haven't quite become the prima ballerina I thought I would, I've always stayed passionate about ballet, especially in Toronto & Canada.
This video makes my hairs stand on end, makes my spine tingle. In this I see everything that I adore about ballet: artistry, physics, discipline, joy, motion, stillness ..
(I would highly suggest watching in HD)
