SF Ballet


Opera House CurtainI love ballet. It was one of those things that I always dreamed of doing as a kid.  I remember when my Mom told me we couldn’t afford ballet lessons anymore, I had only just started taking them, and I told myself that regardless of whether or not I got to be a dancer I’d watch a real ballet someday.  I have since seen a ballet in NY, Los Angeles and last night I got to add San Francisco to the list.  My client and I went to see Program 7, a triple bill that included Caprice, The Four Temperaments and The Swimmer.  My favorite was Caprice because of the beauty and elegance of the Yuan Yuan Tan, who is so graceful she seems lighter than air.  The Swimmer was a close second which used a scrim and projection to bring the ballet to life almost like a musical and I hadn’t seen that done before.  It didn’t hurt that the Principal dancer was amazing either.  I’m inspired to hunt down an adult ballet class in LA and see if I can finally learn to dance.
