End of the Year Performances

On June 3 and 9, The Rock School performed at Longwood Gardens and the Merriam Theater, respectively. At the gardens, we danced on an outdoor stage with large hedges as wings, and a fountain behind us. The stage had uneven spots, which was a little unnerving, but it was a beautiful day and it was exciting to be performing outdoors.  At the Merriam Theater, the school performed our Spring Showcase. My level also performed our Showcase piece, choreographed by Justin Allen, at Longwood Gardens. After our performance at the Merriam (it was our last of the year), we all stayed on stage and said our goodbyes.

Now that the school year is over, I am heading to the School of American Ballet for five weeks this summer!

    Wow!! That stage is gorgeous.

    You look good in all of your photos. You hit all of the positions with excellent form.

    I just checked out The Rock School website per your link. They have an very well done website. (I have seen some very neglected and under-whelming ballet school websites.)

    Have fun at SAB. In a couple of weeks, I will be attending the New York City Ballet at Saratoga Springs 2 week summer series. I love that 2 weeks.
