Like any other typical girl, I’ve had a lifelong fascination with ballet. One of my favorite movies is The Red Shoes (the drama! the suspense!). My old violin teacher used to dance for the San Francisco Ballet and I love hearing stories of her years in the ballet.
Henry Leutwyler shot a more gritty, real-to-life version of the NYC Ballet for Vanity Fair. I love how he captured the energy and tension of the dancer’s leaps and bounds and blurred movements. To quote Albert Einstein, “Dancers are the athletes of God” and I do agree.
