This month I will be going to watch Ballet Ireland's exhilarating and dynamic new show, Bold Moves in the O'Reilly Theatre. The show is a triple bill of contemporary work with choreography by internationally renowned choreographers Christopher Bruce, Marguerite Donlon and Filipe Portugal. I'll also be going to the rehearsals to film some behind-the-scenes footage!
For a short period in my life, I wanted to be a ballerina (I was 7) and attended classes for a while. I had dreadful balance (which has gotten better over the years through doing yoga) and my concentration/focusing skills didn't help, so I didn't attend the classes for very long. I really did love that tutu, my mam customized it with the sequins (I always had to be a bit EXTRA) and in the photo I wearing it for a school thing. Anyway, I still have deep admiration for the discipline/training that goes into ballet dancing and my deep respect for this art form has always stayed.
