Queen Monkey Ballerina
Skoshi A was the second of our three ballerinas for parent's observation week. It's more difficult to get clear photos of the two older dancers, as their classes move much more quickly. Skoshi A is improving leaps and bounds and recently passed her Grade II Cecchetti exam.
Here is my attempt at artsy photography with Skoshi A in a tendue at the barre in black and white.
Here she is, with a rare serene expression, standing in 5th position awaiting her music.
I've noticed Skoshi A has inherited my lip and cheek chew when she is concentrating during ballet. I have dozens of photos of her either biting her lip. . .
. . . or chewing on her cheek.
I love this photo of her doing a chasse temps leve. It was one of the only "action" shots that turned out halfway decent.
