In the Beginning…

…there was Catherine de’ Medici. Okay, so that might not be completely true because there were people before her to contribute to the development of ballet… But she can be credited for bringing ballet to France, and for that… we will forever be indebted to Catherine de’ Medici. As I am working hard on my ballet book, I mean it is 4 AM and I am still working… I am reminded that ballet’s history is filled with fun interesting things, that are often forgotten because the majority of ballet history is exhausting to get through. I mean if you look at most ballet books, or ballet history books they are over 400 pages… of pure text…. no offense to the great ballet writers of history, but dear god…. It makes me want to jab my eyes out…. And I LOVE READING…
