Greetings All!

Recommended Posts

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.

Welcome to Ballet Alert, Julio, and welcome to the world of ballet. We hope your enjoyment and love of the art continues to grow. By now you know there's a wealth of information on the board, covering every aspect of ballet. If you're still interested in ballet classes may I suggest you visit our sister site, Ballet Talk for Dancers, accessible at the upper right corner of this page; this site covers dance education. If you become a member it would be nice if you use your same user name so that we can recognize you.

Welcome, Julio! Your enthusiasm is infectious. This forum is a delight for me, as well. It's so nice when fellow ballet enthusiasts find their way here.

Thanks for the welcome, both of you. I'll join Ballet Talk for Dancers now, thanks for the tip. The next intro class program (I'll take it again) begins in mid-March I believe.
