The National Ballet of Canada left the safe confines of the city of Toronto to venture to Washington D.C. to watch our favourite ballet dancers perform Alice at the Kennedy Center. I glanced uneasily at the carry-ons, envisioning their owners' days and nights spent looking increasingly wrinkled and food-stained. It was baffling, therefore, when I spotted these same carry-on women in a different outfit for each and every event.
I'm a principal dancer with the National Ballet of Canada and am presently working on the role of Hamlet in a production from American choreographer Kevin O'Day. I guess one could say I'm spread a little thin these days. Luckily, that's the way I like it. The best part about being so busy is that there's no time to get nervous!
