Saturday Morning: Anaheim Ballet needs your votes

You guys probably know how much I love ballet videos, though it’s frustratingly difficult to find Ballanchine videos online.  Anyway, one of my favorite ballet video subscriptions is Anaheim Ballet.  Their motto is “Anaheim Ballet- more than dance” and the producer, Evan Rosenberg, has a gift for showing all of the aspects of ballet.  Ballet dancers are more than artists, they’re athletes who  strive to get as much perfection out of their imperfect bodies as they possibly can.  They’re also inspiring.  Dancers demonstrate that to master anything really well, you need to keep practicing and challenging yourself, learn to make the most of what you have and work on what isn’t so good to make it better.  So, I find a lot of inspiration from Anaheim Ballet videos because the message is so positive.  If you love to do something, put your heart into it and practice and don’t let anyone, including yourself, tell you that you can’t do it.

With that said, here’s Evan to explain what Anaheim Ballet’s current challenge is:

And here are a couple of Evan’s latest videos:

Alicia Graf Mack- Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre (I love the way she makes her body unfold like a flower)

Austin Eder-Anaheim Ballet student (The Tiny Dancer), age 12.  Simply amazing.

And here is one of my favorite of Evan’s videos of his sister, Aria Alekzander, dancer for Houston Ballet called “Live for Seconds”:

Wasn’t that a nice thing to wake up to?
