Paul Taylor at YBCA

Thank you, Paul Taylor Dance Company, for feeding my soul yesterday. What a diverse program, capped by the joyous Esplanade. And I was I was misty-eyed by the end of Eventide, it was so lovely.

Suits that dance

Dapper dancers for sure! +New York City Ballet's Zachary Catazaro and Joshua Thew in a fashion shoot by Bon Duke with choreography by Troy Schumacher. See also the behind-the-scenes video: http://nyti.ms/1BWdk82
Emboldened by a men’s wear boom, giddy designers like Brooks Brothers and Zegna are testing the limits.

Ballet in Cleveland: Guys Dance Too

Great work going on at +BalletInCleveland! One of many lines I appreciate from the video: guys are "our partners." True on so many levels… we all work and dance together!

" #GuysDanceToo  educates, supports, and empowers males in the art of dance. It frees the minds and potential of male dancers and all who aspire to be one. It breaks down gender barriers and stereotypes and creates opportunities for self-expression for all through dance."

Dancer Spotlight: Joshua Seibel

"+Ballet San Jose's Joshua Seibel has some strong advice for young dancers: never let anyone tell you what you can't do. Seibel should know. Years of ear trouble—and multiple surgeries—have left Seibel mostly deaf. 'People probably don't realize I should technically be wearing hearing aids,' he says. But Seibel's partial deafness hasn't stopped him from dancing. This season, he was even promoted to soloist at Ballet San Jose."
 
Ballet San Jose Soloist Joshua Seibel has faced some serious challenges, but he never let that keep him from dancing. Visit the Ballet San Jose blog and read about his ballet journey.

See Josh perform at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts, along with the rest of the Ballet San Jose Company, May 8-10 for Cinderella! balletsj.org/cinderella2015.html

Introduction
Welcome to the Google+ companion to my dance blog, The Dapper Dancer! There's also my Twitter feed and Facebook page, but if G+ is how you roll, follow this page for an occasional sprinkling of ballet fairy dust: dance news especially in the Bay Area, and my assorted thoughts as I learn ballet as an adult!
