Met a Famous Ballet Dancer?

Perfect Performer

At the Nutcracker I met Yuriko Kajiya. She was such a beautiful dancer. Got her autograph. :devil:

At my old studio in Houston, we would perform our yearly recitals at the Wortham Theater (where the Houston Ballet performs). I rode in an elevator with Lauren Anderson one year when I was like, 14 with a group of dancers from my studio. She said hi and everything and we just looked at her like wow!

Well I come from Norway and here you dont really see a lot of famous dancers :green: But, when I went to New York I saw some :sweating: I saw Julie Kent, Ethan Stiefel, Gilian Murphy and probably more just that I didnt recognise them :thumbsup: well :lol: Although I didnt ask for their autographs which I kind of regret because its not really everyday that I travel to another country :rolleyes:

I understand that she is about 5'2" tall, quite petite and lovely. I have not had the chance to see her dance in person, only on video :)

Well Christpher Stowell is the Artistic Director of my school so i see him all the time and he actually knows me and my name!!! i have also met Patricia Barker two years ago when i went to the summer program and got her autograph and picture. Also Gavin Larson is a Princapal in our company. i dont really know anyone else but my friend met barishnikov when she was at SAB two summers ago. She called me screaming :thumbsup: because she was in the elavator with him and she took a picture of him. he didnt let anyone have autographs though. i was so jealous!!! :):blushing:
