Hello! The Mary Day thread brought me out of lurking -- I studied at WSB, and the Academy of the Washington Ballet for 8 years back in the 70s (was at the National Ballet School before that). Was the perennial oversized apprentice in the back row of ballets like Serenade, and I was glad to be there. Choo-San Goh gave me my most challenging opportunities. Went to NY in 1978 and did contemporary ballet stuff here and there for 10 years for the love of it (certainly not for money!) before going to college and law school. Now I am a DC tax lawyer specializing in employee benefits. This is a great website!

Welcome to Ballet Talk, RobinV1333; we're very glad to have you with us. You wrote a wonderful introduction...a history of ballet, youth, study, and your present status. Thank you for the compliment on the site; we hope you'll enjoy sharing in our discussions as much as you've enjoyed lurking!

Oh I hope to be there and to see you!

Oct is busy, nervous breakdown Cinderella time but I'll keep my fingers crossed.
