My Venture into Talented Ballet

Today I had the opportunity to go to BYU's performance of The Snow Queen with my good friends Rachel and Kristin.

To give you a little bit of background before I continue, I've only ever seen one other ballet performance and it was on a community level, so it wasn't nearly as professional as BYU's presentation. Although I love music and dance, and wanted to be a ballerina when I was little, I'm not a huge fan.

That being said, The Snow Queen was absolutely amazing. The outfits were creative, imaginative, and accentuating; the skill level of the dancers exceeded my expectations; and the music was phenomenol. But most of all, the scenery, props, background, backdrop, setting, all that good stuff, was only slightly less than perfect (since it's impossible to be perfect in this life). The ornate detail, the simple decoration, and the glorious beauty completed the picture the performers tried to create, and they accomplished this with fireworks in my heart. I'm very impressed.

And that's all I have for today, short though it may be.


  1. That's wonderful! I love ballet. I used to be a ballerina when I was eight. Oh how I miss it!

    1. I don't think I could handle standing on my toes like that for extended periods of time. But it's so cool to know you used to do ballet!
