My name is Julio and my interest in ballet began around December 2009. Why exactly I don't know but I started reading books by Julie Kavanagh, Toni Bentley, etc. In January 2010 I took my first ever ballet class, an intro adult class, spanning a whopping 5 Saturdays. I may try it again at some point. So far I've attended ballets performed by Mariinsky, Bolshoi, Washington Ballet and various other companies as part of Ballet Across America II. Whenever I travel I make it a goal to if not attend a ballet, at least go to the theater where it's performed just to get a feel of it all, for example last August in Budapest. The last ballet I saw is Giselle this past weekend. I am devouring all the posts here, what a wonderful collection of information, comments, opinions. I live in Maryland, USA.
