Last night, I had the immense honor of taking the stage with some truly amazing dancers for Festival Ballet Providence‘s first performance of the new season. Along with my fellow company members, an inspiring lineup of guest artists from across North America gathered in the ocean state to support FBP in raising a greater awareness of the arts in our community. Among the celebrated dancers performing in the gala last night were New York City Ballet’s Daniel Ulbricht, National Ballet of Canada’s Greta Hodgkinson and Etienne Lavigne, Boston Ballet’s Adiarys Almeida and Avetik Karapetyan, and Ballet West’s Tom Mattingly and Beckanne Sisk (who also stars in the CW’s Breaking Pointe). It was insanely cool to be a part of this star-studded performance, and even cooler to watch some of the world’s best ballet dancers perform from the wings. Safe to say I won’t be forgetting this experience anytime soon!
