The Russian State Ballet of Siberia -Coppélia & Swan Lake

I am, as always, utterly blown away when I see a professional ballet company perform on stage and to watch performances on two consecutive nights, by The Russian State Ballet of Siberia, was an absolute honour. Having the ‘smallest of small’ working knowledges of ballet that I have, helps to hit home just how good these dancers are. The effortless lines, the musicality, the exquisite jumps, lifts and turns that they execute 100’s of times in one ballet. I really am in utter awe of anyone who has the ability and drive to make, what I purely do for pleasure, a career. I know that ballet is with me to stay now. It’s part of who I am. It’s a part of the jigsaw of my life that interconnects with so many other parts of my life now and I am so thankful that I decided to pursue something that, at the beginning, was such a shot in the dark 😊
