Finally, after a 7-hour trip, The Pennsylvania Ballet has arrived safely in Cleveland, OH. We have an exciting day ahead of us tomorrow; Class in the morning with the artistic director, Angel Corella, and then a full dress rehearsal in the theatre. I am eager to perform The Nutcracker on a different stage and in front of an entirely new audience. It inspires me to bring a fresh and unique quality of movement to what some believe to be a redundant ballet (considering it is performed annually). I also hope to build many friendships with the fellow dancers in the company this week. I still cannot believe that I’m on my first tour right now. Someone pinch me, I’m probably dreaming. Hoping for many more tours to come in the future.
