October! It’s a Sunday next month, but hope to see you all there!

Not "tomorrow" - I fixed that.   😉
I think my brain got scrambled because I was also posting about Ming Luke's Musical Point(e)s. (Either that or I copied and pasted something that was later edited on the SFB site.) I wish Luke's MP had been given more advertisement. I do hope he makes the passed events available in a video archive somewhere.

SFB mentions after-the-fact that the October 6 Ballet Basics class featured Jahna Frantziskonis and Steven Morse. It would have been nice if they had advertised that ahead of time.

I attended (Zoom-wise) the Ballet Across Europe session led by Jennie Scholick - featuring Sasha Mukhamedov, Pascal Molat and Ulrik Birkkjaer. Kudos to Jennie for the well-prepared mini-history of European ballet. It was great to get to know more about Sasha, Ulrik and Pascal - it's always enlightening to hear the dancers talk about their individual personal experiences with ballet schools, company life, dealing with different choreographies, and cultures, etc. It was worth the  money, and I'll be signing up for more. I hope SFB is able to expand this program and get an even larger audience.
