History in the Making

Apollo’s Angels Giveaway

Hello everyone, happy World Ballet Day! World Ballet Day is one of my favourite days of the year, as many of the world’s leading companies, including the Royal Ballet and the Australian Ballet, are sharing their classes, rehearsals, and performances with us all! I would recommend going to the Wolrd Ballet Day 2018 Facebook page to watch all of the live footage as it continues on throughout the day. In the meantime, I am here to make an exciting announcement for everyone- I am hosting a giveaway!

  • I loved your Coppelia post, because you do a great job of expressing the joy in that ballet. So much of ballet is so serious, and it’s nice to feature a fun, comic, and pantomime-filled one on occasion! Can’t believe I haven’t read that book yet, but would love to be added to the giveaway. Side note: have you read Colum McCann’s _Dancer_?

    • Aww thank you!! Ballet certainly is a complex art that does lean towards serious more often than not, and Coppelia is such a wonderful break from it 🙂 I also love the first act in the Nutcracker, as it has quite a few hilarious moments! And I have yet to read Dancer somehow!! It is on my Christmas list, I am hoping Santa delivers it 🙂
