Thank you Victoria!
Reading your words prompted me to remember watching you teach at Martha Mahr's studio in Coral Gables.
You were completely inspiring and I can still picture you teaching the Raymonda Variation.
I also clearly see you dancing Aurora's Wedding Pas, Clair de Lune, Walpurgisnacht and Farewell.
You were incredibly gorgeous!
Thank YOU, glebb! I can't believe that you remember all that.....I think you were maybe 12 years old??? Those were all very special performances for me, though, and the memories are quite wonderful.
Almost as wonderful as Ms. Leigh's rich reminiscences was the opportunity to 'eavesdrop" on this little exchange, which shows not only how small the ballet world sometimes is but, so touchingly, two dancers' appreciation of each others' special qualities.
It is for me to thank you Victoria.
I'm certain that you were the first incredible dancer I saw.
You had extra gorgeous legs/feet and strong, perfect technique.
You were fearless and beautiful.
Thanks, glebb and Ms. Leigh!
