Dress Rehearsal   “Anastasia” Cary Ballet Conservatory

Tiny Dancers #1

Three pre-ballet students in animated conversation before dress rehearsal.  Excitement was in the air.

Winter #3

It’s not magic, its Ballet.  Which sometimes seems so.

Winter #2

Ironically, this was performed last June in the production of “Anastasia” by the Cary Ballet Company.  Projected lighting gave it an ethereal quality made powerful by a haunting cello.  Sometimes it takes awhile to see a photograph.

The staging for this scene,  “Once Upon A December”, was visually compelling.  Through five performances, two dancers alternately danced the role of “Anastasia”, each beautifully, each differently.  This is Ms. Breanna Johnson.

Photographed at the 18 June performance of “Anastasia”, a production of the Ballet and Jazz  Companies of the Cary Ballet Conservatory.   Yet another reason I’m taking so long to edit the performance photographs.
