This season marks the 80th anniversary of the San Francisco Ballet, the oldest professional and most heralded ballet company in the United States. I’ve been so stressed with everything that I didn’t have time to get a new dress to wear to the ball. I felt so under-dressed compared to all the women dripping with diamonds in their floor-length gowns. Next year, I vow to get all gussied up.
I just want to cry every time the principal dancer Yuan Yuan Tan gets on stage. She is my absolute favorite. I found this clip on YouTube which is the same dance that she performed at the gala. Dean and I have agreed that the year she retires (which should be soon), we are buying season tickets. There’s no one like her, so incredible!
