Ballet's like Serenade by George Balanchine make me miss being a dancer more than anything. It was one of the first ballets I ever saw in person and was one of the first Balanchine ballet's I learned. There is something about it that speaks to me as I know it does so many others. It somehow encapsulates the essence of being a ballet dancer. And the music. Oh, the music. Serenade is one of those ballets where everything comes together perfectly and it may be one of the most pleasant ballets to watch and dance...Maybe that's why I miss it so much.
