In case you wondered dear blogosphere, I am still alive and well. This week I have a guest teaching engagement at Lake Placid School of Ballet, where there has been a cold drizzle and kids attending dance camp have come trickling into the studios covered in fleece. Strange mid-August phenomenon, especially for this Southern girl. This cheerful farmer’s market greeted me today as I headed to my first class; I love the beautiful produce I have seen here in New York and in my home state of Vermont this summer. I also love being part of this summer school, with my esteemed guest colleagues, Misha Ilyin (American Ballet Theatre), and Fred Walton (a Joe Tremaine disciple). The kids are bright-eyed and working very hard for us in their classes; on Friday they will showcase ballet and jazz choreography for their parents. This is a nice way to finish summer ballet before a short break ahead of fall term at my home school. Oh, and by the way: Lake Placid is breathtaking.
Thanks for having me, Alice and Terpsie. More from me soon, bloggy friends.
