Hello friends!  I’m headed to Maine with (lots of) friends for the long weekend.  In case you need some distraction from the last few hours of this week’s work…

The most beautiful partnering by Lauren Lovette and Jared Angle in Justin Peck’s Belles Lettres. (equally gorgeous embroidery on the costumes pictured above)

The swimming specifics of San Fransisco Ballet’s Frances Chung. (love the note about winging your foot to promote proper muscle memory)

William Forsythe is saying Au Revoir Paris and Hello Boston. (welcome to Beantown, Bill)

Alessandra as Juliet. (watched it 3 times in one night)

I’ll be in France (!) when NYCB does A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Saratoga, but I’ll be back just in time for Jewels. (be sure to watch that Midsummer preview all the way through)

Maria Kotchetkova talks personal style and mental strength with Vogue. (“a sweatshirt is never just a sweatshirt” + sheer ennui)

Craig Hall retired from NYCB. (this little video featuring a pas de deux from the Peck/Stevens ballet Year of the Rabbit would probably make Wes Anderson happy)
