Ballet lessons…

{Ballet season}: This is the time where we normally would have got ready to welcome the Ballet season, a thrill at the arrival of the tutus and boxes filled with ballerina shoes…… overwhelming emotions at the beginning of the season : from joy to sadness on the last day of the season and then the flowers throw, a very classy way to end the show before curtain down… and voices from all over the auditorium screaming BRAVO BRAVO…. I miss those precious moments shared with colleagues and friends at the English National Opera, the quick run to the Dress Circle to have a quick look at the show to then rush quick back upstairs for the Ice-cream interval:Double Cream Vanilla, English Strawberry, Dutch Chocolate and of course Stem Ginger….and the fabulous programmes…..I miss Adam and Miss Hannah and Miss Stella and her charm ….and of course the Curtain Call with the fire evacuation procedures, everything the laugh, the Christmas drinks, the Double Shows, the Uniform …. Such great times, I regret I couldn’t keep in touch with anybody, but I am too scared of ruining beautiful memories, precious times spent together as a family ….those are times that I preciously keep and treasure in my heart and yes when it comes around to this time I look sadly at the posters on the Underground and think proudly I was once part of the glamour …..

Good morning darling, how beautiful ballet is, and how nice you were a ballet dancer... I understand now your sensibility to the wonderful things in life.
If you have the time come to visit me.
Muchos cariños

Beautiful pictures, I love them! Ballet is great.

Even have to see the film you blogged about last time, it looks very inspiring. I´m completely fascinated by the film "Sequins" (Brodeuses) right now!

Take care, Kirsten
