So, it’s summertime and the Ballet West dancers are dispersed around the country. Most dancers use this time to visit with family or to go on vacation or to stay in beautiful Salt Lake editing photos all day (living the life!). Whatever we’re doing, taking a needed mental break from ballet is usually part of our plans. Like anything that is extremely intense, you will go crazy if you don’t turn your back to ballet and face Maggie Moo’s. For all you vegan ballet dancers out there, you’re just gonna go crazy. A milkshake a day keeps the abs away, by the way (that rhymed three times).
I wanted to bid a few of our dancers farewell. Katherine Hein will be attending the honors college here at the U in the fall. Owen Gaj will be studying to be an EMT at Cole Holland College here in Salt Lake. Easton Smith will be doing all kinds of crazy stuff, because that’s what he does. Owning a helicopter company and starting a business to sell ultra supremely healthy dog food will be part of Easton’s new life. He might be on Broadway again sometime too, you never know.
Stay posted for photos from the annual fashion show that happened in May and from Johann Jacob’s going away party. Below are a few pictures from our last sightings on stage.
