  1. (I posted this in the SFB forum since the video began there originally, but am posting here since PNB will now be a part of it) Around the time the pandemic began, SFB premiered a video called Sequentia. One dancer would begin to dance and pass on to another dancer. The new dancer would begin their movement in the pose or movement the previous dancer ended with. After SFB, NYCB picked up where SFB ended. Shortly thereafter, ABT added their moves. Tomorrow at 10 AM PT, PNB will add their moves. Here are links from the SFB FB and YouTube pages: https://www.facebook.com/sfballet/vi
  2. And the baton is passed to - Pacific Northwest Ballet Sequentia continues!!! If you all recall, at the time the pandemic began SFB premiered a video called Sequentia. A dancer would begin to dance and then pass on to the next dancer whose movement would begin with the previous dancers last move. New York City Ballet picked up where SFB left off, and then ABT followed. Up next is Pacific Northwest Ballet. The video will premiere tomorrow at 10 AM PT. I found links on their FB and YouTube pages: https://www.facebook.com/sfballet/videos/350845619702284 YouTube:
  3. Ballet Shop now online!! As a volunteer, I worked in the gift shop for Saturday evening performances. This is one of the things I miss with COVID-19. All proceeds from the shop go back to San Francisco Ballet. But now, the shop is online!! Here is the link: https://shop.sfballet.org/. There was also an announcement on FB: I hope that you will consider visiting the shop online.

  7. As a proud ballet volunteer, I received an email with the announcement that there will be no live Nutcracker performances this year. The reason is the San Francisco War memorial and Performing Arts Center has decided to keep its venues closed for pubic performances through December 31, 2020. Link on website: https://www.sfballet.org/nutcracker-announcement/ Message on website: San Francisco Ballet regretfully announces there will be no live performances of Nutcracker this year. The Company's decision comes in the wake of continued restrictions posed by COVID-19 pandemic and

  12. Initial thoughts: Only 7 programs instead of the usual 8. Excited that most of the cancelled programs will be returning next year. The only ones not coming back are Millepied's Appassionata & Possokhov's Classical Symphony - but his Swimmer makes a most welcome return in Program 1. Interesting that all the full-lengths will be in the second half of the season. Also, no performances in April and most of May. Perhaps to rehearse the last two programs (Swan Lake & Romeo & Juliet)? Although I am happy to see Swan Lake again, it has been years since we've

  20. NYC Ballet picks up the ball from SFB in an extended 'Sequentia'. A few weeks ago, a video was posted with movement initiated by Tiit Helimets then passed on to another dancer who would begin their movement with the last pose from Tiit, and so on. Now in an expanded 'Sequentia', NYC Ballet picks up the ball from SFB's Joshua Jack Price with a change in music. Here is the clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fez-cfhJN1U. Hope this will continue.... And here's the link on the SFB website; https://www.sfballet.org/sequentia/
