some things i liked this week (and a half) 9/18/14

or maybe it’s two weeks. i’ve been really busy.

well, obviously, first and foremost there’s this!! 😀 😀 😀 because he’s my favorite.

herman cornejo ~ interview & dance footage ~ yay!


where’s sergei? i’m loving these hilarious photos that have been appearing on sergei polunin’s facebook fanpage. (posted by CL martin – you may want to check out the page, as the accompanying text for each photo is amusing as well).











if you follow ballet at all in social media you have probably already seen this, but it’s worth watching more than once. 🙂  james whiteside, cory stearns and daniil simkin being so fancy free! ♥♥♥


the royal ballet’s stunning trailer for manon, featuring marianela nunez. marianela is surely one of the greatest and most versatile ballerinas of our time and i am beyond thrilled that her performance of manon is going to be live-streamed in cinema! this clip is so beautiful- i love the lighting.


this funny picture of national ballet of canada’s rex harrington. i am absolutely dying to see christopher wheeldon’s “alice” and the fact that i actually had to turn down free tickets to see it this week very nearly killed me. whyyyyyy does it have to be playing in new york during one of the busiest weeks of my life? 😡

jacques d’amboise being adorable coaching lesley rausch and jerome tisserand in balanchine’s diamonds ♥ (at at pacific northwest ballet).

(in other pnb news… carla korbes is retiring??? 😥  😥  😥  !! she is too young and too gorgeous!)


and finally, it seems about half of american ballet theatre got married this summer and five ABT ballerinas were recently featured in brides magazine! here is a behind the scenes video from the shoot, featuring brittany degrofft, nicola curry, isabella boylston, lauren post and elina miettinen. pretty, pretty, pretty!!
