here is a wonderful video of the joffrey ballet rehearsing “prodigal son” with edward villella – if you live in the chicago area please go see this on my behalf. thanks 😉  (this alberto velazquez guy is intriguing, isn’t he? a bit of a sensuous quality about him and an interesting face. i like him!)

unfortunately i wasn’t home to watch the joffrey’s livestream rehearsal of swan lake with christopher wheeldon, but happily it is  still available to watch on youtube and i plan to get to it soon.

and a cute and silly picture of pugs doing ballet that appeared in my FB feed the other day (thanks johanna)! the drawings are by illustrator sarah ogilvie and i believe they are from a children’s book called “dogs don’t do ballet” by anna kemp. (alas, i have not read the book since i no longer have kids in the appropriate age range. however maybe i will go sneak read it at the library just for fun 😉 )
