Another tour for the books, one more to go.
We got to travel with the main company last weekend to the American Dance Festival in Durham, NC. On the program were two performances by the main Company (Quintett, Little mortal jump, Too Beaucoup) and our second-to-last Harold and the Purple Crayon:A Dance Adventure. There were full houses at each show and standing ovations both nights.
But the highlight of the trip was meeting William Forsythe. He was the recipient of the Scripps/ADF Life Achievement Award, and as our director Taryn put it, “an articulate, intelligent, insightful human.”
How incredible is it that within the last three weeks we’ve worked alongside the main Company in process with Alonzo King and mingled with William Forsythe? Two years ago, if anyone had told me I would be in this position I most likely would have laughed and dreamed about it. But this is reality. This is what our life is now. Words can’t describe.
Here’s to one last tour to Aspen, Colorado and cheers to the end of my first full season as a professional dancer!
Happy 4th of July everyone!
