There was so much to see at the ballet, so we decided to split it across two posts. Here is our second one!!!

In the afternoon, dancers meet for on-stage rehearsals – a full run of that evening’s shows. They stop and start to the signal of the dance masters, who oversee every tiny arch of the foot. That’s it – just one final rehearsal before the show.

Backstage is calm – the dancers quietly take their final stretches. Most of them do their own makeup. The principals are sewn into their costumes (to be cut out of after the performance). A final coating of rosin powder to reduce slippage is added to pointe shoes. This night they perform Serenade, Agon, and Symphony in C.

And when the curtain rises, you’re transported by a brief encounter with beautiful athleticism…

Have you ever felt that at the ballet, too?
