milestones & memories.

Posted on March 17, 2014

Well today marks something simply significant in the timeline of my chronicles here…Exactly one year ago on this very day, I boarded a jet plane from Denmark to America to continue my dance career with the Boston Ballet. I remember it so clearly, weighted down with an overwhelming burden of tearful goodbye’s, one (5) too many overweight suitcases filled with flea market treasures and four years of precious memories made with the Royal Danish Ballet and my Copenhagen family…It was a painfully beautiful day as I savored my final glimpses of this colorful, cultural gem of European charm, and flew home to ecstatic parents, an apartment eager to be filled with new stories, and a life, forever changed by the perspective-shifting chapter that came before…

Palais Garnier another Way

Posted on January 21, 2012

Last Christmas, as you may recall from Palais Garnier & Gratin, I had the luxury of spending the holiday with friends in Paris, France. We ate our hearts out, indulging generously in Foie Gras, Pain au Chocolat and the like and everything was precisely as it should be… I even witnessed my first live performance of the Paris Opera Ballet on the grandeur stage of the Palais Garnier Opera House. I sat there in tears as the most breathtaking dancers ate the stage with delicate fury and made a secret wish that someday that just might be me. Well… Here I am. One year later, and I can proudly, albeit humbly tell you that the opportunity arose. Quell Surprise! The Royal Danish Ballet just…

Sleepless Cities & Summer

Posted on June 24, 2011

The final leg of our 4-week USA tour brought us to the island of Manhattan…A city of lights, taxis, skyscrapers and art lovers that welcomed the Royal Danish Ballet with fancy freedom. We had the honor of performing in the New York City Ballet’s David Koch Theater, located in the heart of Lincoln Center on the Upper West Side, where we danced for audiences aplenty during a surreal week of wonder. Between friend & family re-unions, frequented cafés of yesteryear, crabby cabbies and endless nights… I savored the sights, smells and simple magic that only the City can provide. Atlast the season has come to an end…Sigh. It’s been a complete whirlwind of challenges, rewards, opportunities, passion, exhaustion, love & laughter…and now, summer greets us…

Company in the Capital

Posted on June 15, 2011

Last week the Royal Danish Ballet’s USA Tour took us to the Nation’s Capital where we performed at the The Kennedy  Center for the Performing Arts. An elaborate venue that has hosted several world-renowned companies over the past 5 decades—a cultural gem in the midst of memorials and monuments aplenty… Napoli & Folktale ensued with rave reviews and standing ovations much to our delight, even a visit from her Majesty the Queen of Denmark! Despite melting temperatures, we found time to appreciate our “Capital Exchange” from Copenhagen to D.C.~ Alas, we find ourselves in the City that Never Sleeps…which greeted us famously after our final Sunday matinee in Washington. RDB now takes on New York City where we will be performing a mixed repertoire over the…
