sarah lambs beautiful, elegant white swan variation. i love sarah’s dancing – so pure and classical with lovely phrasing. there is a quiet sadness to her swan queen and i think she is just wonderful. this was danced at the kremlin palace in moscow with steven mcrae (♥) and there are a few more clips from that performance on the same youtube channel if you’re interested.
and speaking of steven mcrae….. i kinda have to love him warming up outside wearing sunglasses.
michele wiles’ ballet next wearing these insanely awesome dresses. seriously, how fun would it be just to spin and dance around in these??

the fact that world ballet day is going to be a thing! in case you somehow missed this, on on october 1st there will be an all day live broadcast featuring five major ballet companies from all around the world – and they want you to participate 😉 check it out and send in your pirouettes….
these fantastic drawings by andrea selby showed up in my facebook feed the other day and i am just madly in love with them! they are drawings from damian woetzel’s works and process demo at the guggenheim earlier this week (which i was unfortunately unable to attend).

and speaking of liam scarlett….. omg these incredibly stunning costumes (by sara burton) from his new piece for NYCB! (damn, liam is busy, huh)?
there is a lovely clip from the premiere of scarlett’s funérailles on new york city ballet’s FB page.
and how about this amazing image of stella abrera as giselle?! (guesting with ballet philippines). her hair! her face! stunning.
