After studying ballet for 12 years, I now cannot hear anything by Debussy, Chopin, Tchiakovsky, and most of Mozart without going through floor and barre work in my head. I suppose I still consider myself a dancer, taking class from time to time. I was once a dream to dance professionally, or to at least make it past the stage of apprenticeship.

The San Francisco Ballet is truly one of the top companies in the world. Classic full-lengths are performed with both perfection and emotion. And Tomasson is risky. We are lucky.

Sometimes, when I’m feeling down, I put on my pointe shoes and flit around my apartment for a bit.
