Hello from Boston
Posted 12 February 2007 - 09:18 AM
My name is Jessica and I'm a student in Boston, originally from the Washington, DC area. I haven't seen much ballet, but I'm looking forward to exploring the world of dance more. I saw The Nutcracker several times with my family when I was younger, but the experience which really got me into ballet was seeing the Hamburg Ballet's "Nijinsky" at the Kennedy Center three years ago. My grandmother took me and we had amazing seats. The ballet just blew me away, and completely changed my conception of what ballet could be. I've just seen "Death in Venice" in New York over the weekend, and I greatly enjoyed that as well.
I would love to see more ballets like this, but I'm not really sure where to start.
Oh, and I haven't seen anything by the Boston Ballet yet, but I hope to go next month
I'm looking forward to discussing ballet with you all and learning a lot!

However, ballet is a big world comprising many sub-genres, and it's all there for you (and us) to discover. I hope you'll report on your reactions as you embark on your journey.

Hmm - I figured as much. I suppose it's tours and DVDs till I get to go to Europe, then. I'm looking forward to discovering what American companies have to offer in the meantime. I'll definitely share my experiences.
