Hi!. My name is Vivian. I'm an elementary school art teacher , and I love ballet. I was a History of Art teacher in my native country, Cuba, for 27 years and i currently live in Miami Fla. Today I went to a Swan Lake performance. It was something UNFORGETTABLE. The ballerina doing Odette/Odile ( sorry, I'm bad remembering names...have to look for her name later) was so good!!! After the performance I went backstage and saw her . She looked so fragile.. contrasting with the tremendous temper that she showed onstage!. With this kind of performance, ballet will be forever an exquisite and vivid art for sure. Anyways, i hope to learn a lot from this site. (I was already reading some topics and wow, i feel a little intimidated).
