The Emeralds (George Balanchine) program lived up to its expectations. By the end of the program, Friday night, I was reminded why I am so lucky to do what I do. I took Christiana’s hand at the very end of Petite Mort (Jiri Kylian) and simply walked upstage as the curtain lowered. Immediately I felt a rush of energy shoot from the house as the patrons rose to their feet and cheered. Fellow dancer, Aidan DeYoung, gave me a hug after the show and said that we can check off doing Petite Mort (Jiri Kylian) from our list of things to do in life. I agreed … this ballet is what dancers around the world dream of performing.
