The master of the ceremonies introduced to her a very gentlemanlike young man as a partner; his name was Tilney. He seemed to be about four or five and twenty, was rather tall, had a pleasing countenance, a very intelligent and lively eye, and, if not quite handsome, was very near it. His address was good, and Catherine felt herself in high luck.
It’s weird seeing him like that and then seeing him in videos with the epic turtleneck and the perfectly combed and luscious white hair
In my own little corner, in my own little chair… (at Metropolitan Museum of Art)
Hanging out with The Little Fourteen Year Old Dancer. Please excuse my poor fourth position.
Caught Swan Lake at the Met with my mom and sis last night and it was magnificent! My inner lapsed dancer was pretty much beaming. I loved seeing all the little girls bouncing on their seat cushions with excitement. They reminded me of myself when I was their age and to be truthfully honest, I was just as excited as they were (2+ hours of Tchaikovsky will do that to me).
Polina Semionova and Marcelo Gomes were so incredible. Watching them in the Act II pas d’action was a DREAM. The combination of their grace and the music got me a tad bit emotional. No jokes, people. I remember reading an article in the Times that did a feature on Gomes and his Hell’s Kitchen apartment and it featured a little clip of him dancing. I’ve been hooked ever since. *sigh*
"I’ve been trying to get into a full time orchestra for the past 20 years. I’d guess I’ve been to over 200 auditions. It can be pretty heartbreaking. I tried out for the New York Philharmonic four times. One time I prepared three months for the Los Angeles Philharmonic audition, flew all the way across the country, and they cut me off after twelve seconds. But believe or not, I still have a certain amount of optimism about the process. And I think I’m getting better."
