Hello Ballet Beauties!

I stumbled on this beautiful video of Christopher Wheeldon’s After the Rain that was posted by the New York City Ballet last week after September 11th. This short piece, titled New Beginnings, filmed on the 57th floor of the 4WTC in Manhattan is “a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, and a tribute to the future of the city that New York City Ballet calls home” NYCB explains.

Sometimes dance and movement really do speak louder than words. On a day like 9/11, where no words can truly articulate our complicated sorrow, this piece seems to express up the sadness and the hope all together.

I have always felt that some of my deepest expression has been shown on stage through dance and aerial ballet. I am so happy I found this and wanted to share with you.

Enjoy and peace be with you!
