Hello:
I was wandering around in the wonderful world of the web when I stumbled on the Ballet Talk for Dancers site. I didn't notice the "for Dancers" part because I was so excited to see a thriving forum on ballet. Anyway, I registered there, but the administrator suggested I might find this forum more suited to my interests. I've enjoyed attending the ballet for many years. For my first full-length ballet, I saw Makarova and Baryshnikov in "Giselle," and I was hooked. I would like to learn more about the craft and history of ballet so I can be a more discerning member of the audience. I am also writing a novel about a ballet dancer, and I think this will be a great resource to help me bring authenticity to my story.

This site in conjunction with the Dancers' site, BT4D as we like to call it, can give you viewpoints from both sides of the curtain.

I wish you well with your novel, and I hope you'll take time out of writing it to tell us what's happening in your area.

Welcome to BalletTalk, Tuscany. :bow:

Welcome Tuscany... You'll find the most knowledgeable people about ballet anywhere. I'm not one of them, but these brilliant people suffer my many questions and dish out some of the most amazing bits about ballet.

BT is an addiction you won't want to give up.

My mother is first-generation Italian. I'm just an American girl obsessed with Tuscany, who recently returned from her first visit to Italy. Heavenly.

:) Oh how I love Italy. I absolutely adore the Tuscan hills. But I am a city girl at heart so I have a Florentine passion. Welcome.
