No Matter The Continent, A Studio Is Home

Richmond Ballet is currently making its international debut in a tour to London. Dancer Maggie Small is giving Pointe the inside scoop. Read her earlier post here.

 

The past two days we have been rehearsing in the Royal Ballet School studios and at the Linbury Theater where we'll be performing tonight and tomorrow. It's so interesting how we can cross an ocean and be in a different country, but once we get to the studio or theater we're back in familiar territory. There is almost always a barre, a piano and mirrors or in the theater, a dark quietness that separates us from the outside world until an audience fills the seats, which is what will happen tonight. One more rehearsal this afternoon and it's game time.
