Photos of Balletcougar, March 2010:

February 17, 2011 § 1 Comment

These photos are from the rehearsals and performances at San Francisco’ Cowell Theatre on March 20 & 21, 2010. Our group performed a neoclassical piece to Bach and a classical piece to Masquerade.

All of us are dancers who started ballet as adults. Of course we are not perfect and made plenty of mistakes, but we were still happy with our effort since both pieces were very challenging.

This was my 2nd performance on a real stage. If I can do it after only 6 years dancing and a lung transplant, you can too…given you live in a place where there is an opportunity for adults to perform. Like in San Francisco with Kathy Mata!

Neoclassical, Bach

That’s me on the left having to do penchee’ for like 10 seconds with a 17 year old! Well, not bad for an old lady I guess!


And the final pose for Bach.
