This evening, one of my friends invited me to accompany her to go see the Moscow Festival Ballet Company perform at Binghamton University's Main Stage Production. It was breathtaking! They performed Act II from Giselle and Act II from Coppelia. The scenery, the costumes, the lights, the dancing - it was all so magical.
I had my jaw opened the entire time. It was such an amazing experience to see these beautiful ballerinas twirl and jump and leap and glide across the stage. As a dancer. I cannot help but appreciate the beauty that was performed this evening. I was always considering taking dance classes over the summer to help improve my technique for ballroom, but now, I think I want to focus on ballet.Of course, starting out so late in life in regards to ballet, I could never perform in front of an audience. However, this evening instilled a passion for learning anything in regards to ballet. In Manhattan, they offer beginner ballet classes; I will definitely be signing up for those!
My outfit was very simple. Since this was the Ballet, I had to dress up more formally; up at school, I have very little formal dresses, so I took this simple summer staple, belted it with a colorful belt to give it a pop and add definition to my waist ,and paired it with stockings to make it more formal, along with heels and a blazer. Since it gets chilly at night, I added my light blue coat.
I am wearing: Dress: (Old Navy); Stockings: (H&M); Blazer: (Larry Levine);
Belt (Lucky Brand); Coat: (White Stag); Shoes: (Vintage)
This was my second Ballet that I have ever attended; the first time was when I went to see The Nutcracker with my sister this past December. I cannot wait until my next opportunity to see The Ballet!
Have A Lovely Wednesday!
