BostonBalletGirl Posted July 9, 2004 Report Share Posted July 9, 2004 (edited) Hey guys, believe it or not I still have my post ADC glow. Everytime I turn my computer on and hear crazy or walking after midnight or see one of Carolyn's photos that now grace my desktop I am reminded of the wonderful time I had. as I mentioned when I first introduced myself my age (18, for those who may be reading this that weren't there I was the youngest ADCer) has affected me a dancer because I am just young enough too be scorned by my peers. I take class at very good school. ( yes, most of you know which) and every time I walk in there the professional track students (a few of whom I actually know) make me feel worthless. " what are you doing here" " give it up all ready" is all said with that icy glare as they strut down the hall swinging their pointe shoes. Needless to say I have been so jealous of these girls for so long. Being at ADC with you guys was incredible. Everyone was so supportive of everyone else in a way which is overshadowed sometimes due to the competitiveness of ballet. I learned and performed a piece of Giselle (my favorite ballet) and I got to try PDD. (apologies Ed for being so nervous). I also got to do the thing I wanted to do most and yet thought would never happen: take pointe class. at the risk of sounding cliche I know you can understand how big a deal that is. so maybe I'm not in Ailey 2 or have been asked to join ABT 2 or am going to the Fordham/ailey program or am even good enough to attend SDP at Boston ( all examples are actually people I know) ADC however made me feel good about myself and I hope I will be able to carry that spirit with me when I return to class next week and am faced with those girls. alright enough being sappy, I actually have 2 questions. Does anyone happen to know what "piece" of the Giselle music was used for my groups repertory. I haven't been able to find it! And the other q was does anyone have any idea at all when the pic and video will come? I'm trying to be patient but come on, I know you guys are eager to see it too! also, anyone feel free to turn this into a " favorite moments" post. ( well as long as thats allowed) Edited July 9, 2004 by BostonBalletGirl Quote Link to comment
