valentine’s day at the ballet


Happy Valentine’s Day, lovers!

This year FBP is celebrating with a final performance of steamy Scheherazade & Soledad at Up Close On Hope.  There’s (yet another) snow storm in the forecast, but we’re nearly sold out tonight, so the show must go on!  Here we go FBP, let’s melt away all that Juno, Marcus, and whatever they’re calling this next precipitory* white-out.  Motivational speech, concluded.

*not a word, just go with it.



Happy Valentine’s Day, loves!  Today is all about spreading the l-o-v-e, so be sure to tell everyone you love just how special they are to you.  Tonight I will be celebrating the ol’ V-day with my boyfriend by -you guessed it- going out to a fancy dinner (wine included).  How grown up are we?!

On a less grown up note…

photo…you’re never too old for Valentine’s Day treats in the workplace!  We ballet dancers love our chocolate.

In celebration of this love-filled day, I leave you with one of my favorite love songs, C’est La Mort by The Civil Wars.  Enjoy! xx

What To Wear: Valentine’s Day

We all know the date night wardrobe protocol for February 14- flirty dresses, slinky tanks, sexy heels- but what about the first 11 hours of the day?  If you’re like me, you’ll take any excuse to dress according to a holiday (that’s right, folks, this girl doesn’t reserve special occasion ensembles for Halloween and Christmas Eve…July 4th, St. Patrick’s Day, and YOU GUESSED IT Valentine’s Day all warrant coordinating outfit selections).  This year,  I’ll be spending my V-Day with a day full of rehearsals, an evening hiphop class (my newest workout obsession), and hopefully an abundance of chocolate.  But if I weren’t planning on being clad in a leotard and tights all day, I would sport any pair of the jeans above with a simple, subtly sheer top (possible polka-dots included), and some serious power heels.
