It's time for a balletcation! Tomorrow we head to L.A. see American Ballet Theatre at The Music Center. On my agenda: mixed rep on Thursday (Apollo, Chamber Symphony, Symphony in C) and Le Corsaire on Sunday. Super excited!
Wendy Whelan! Check it: San Francisco Performances' just-announced 2014/15 Dance Series includes Batsheva Dance Company (Nov 2014), Wendy Whelan (Restless Creature) (Jan 2015), and Paul Taylor Dance Company (Apr 2015).
The Bolshoi #Ballet's Sleeping Beauty, with Svetlana Zakharova and David Hallberg, will be shown in many U.S. movie theaters tomorrow, Sun Dec 15. Here in San Francisco it will be at the Vogue Theatre at 9 am. (Yikes. I'd love to watch it, but that early I probably won't make it after all.)
Planning a quick L.A. getaway to see Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty at the Music Center, probably either next Friday or Saturday, November 29-30... and maybe catch the +LA Phil and +LA Opera that weekend as well. Cup runneth over! #ballet#matthewbourne#sleepingbeauty

Welcome to the Google+ companion to my dance blog, The Music and the Mirror! 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!
