Dancing Days


A couple of weekends ago I danced in a show with Creations Dance Theater called Cornucopia.  It was a lot of fun, really casual and laid back and I had a great time!  And just a few days before, the boy took me to see the Ballet Nacional de Cuba at the Music Center performing Don Quixote--- That's definitely one of my favorite ballets!  I love the music, the choreography and especially the humor.  




The company was incredibly skilled and tight, especially the men.  The precision of the lead Matador and his girlfriend Mercedes was incredible and inspiring!  However, Kitri, danced by , while having gorgeous extension and perfect technique, seemed to lack the fire, pizazz and attitude that the part needs.  It was like she was on auto-pilot.  Very strange.   But still enjoyable and fun.  

I love the Music Center so much.  It's one of my favorite places in Los Angeles and The Dorothy Chandlier Pavilion holds a special place in my heart. 

Here's a little clip from rehearsals for the last show...
