Paris, Here We Come!!!!

I can hardly believe it; after so much hard work (and what seemed a lifetime of patience), MCB’s tour to Paris is finally here! Tomorrow at this time we’ll all be on an Air France flight eagely awaiting our arrival in what is arguably the most romantic city as well as the world’s arts and culture capital. It won’t be all fun and games though – we’ve got a tough eighteen shows (fourteen different ballets) in twenty-three days ahead of us; but despite being anxious, I’m super excited to be dancing one of my all time favorite ballets on opening night of the festival – Jerome Robbins’ Afternoon of a Faun. I’m confident that we’re all ready to show them what we’re made of…just hope we all make it to the end in one piece!

On Monday morning, a group of ten of us are headed to the world-renowned Paris Opera to take company class. That in and of itself will be an amazing and unforgettable experience! The Palais Garnier is without a doubt the most gorgeously ornate theater I have ever seen, and the company’s studios are located in the very same building. It will be a historic site seeing trip for us, as well as a great opportunity to get our bodies going before we rehearse on Tuesday at the Teatre du Chatelet.

During our Parisian adventures, I’ll be blogging on miami.com to keep Miamians up to date on our happenings there. Keep and eye out for links to it here on my blog. It should be fun to stay up to date on how things are going for us there, and to see some photos as well!

Au revoir et a bientot! C’est parti!
