The Classical Girl has just turned six! To help celebrate, enjoy my novels, A Dancer’s Guide to Africa, Off Balance and the award-winning Outside the Limelight for 99 cents each, all this week. Just click on their titles!
Welcome to The Classical Girl, voted one of Feedspot’s Top Ballet Blogs. If you were drawn to this site it’s possibly for one of the following reasons: you’re interested in ballet; you like classical music, or you play the violin. Or because you, like myself, are struggling to negotiate this bumpy, tricky path called life, and maybe my musings on this journey will provide further illumination.
If you’re an adult beginner to ballet (or the violin, or really, any new endeavor in life), you might enjoy my post on “Beginner’s Remorse.” Anyone interested in ballet might enjoy this artist’s spotlight on the lovely, talented Yuan Yuan Tan of the San Francisco Ballet or the humorous (maybe now, but not when it happened) “Ballet Live: Biggest Onstage Gaffes” and/or “How I Almost Didn’t Go Back“.
Violinists and violin students might get a kick over the quaintly misguided assumptions I’d harbored as a new adult beginner in “First Violin Encounter“. Classical music enthusiasts might enjoy “The Curse of the Ninth” or “Saint Saens at 35,000 Feet.”
Be sure to check out my novels: Off Balance, Book 1 of the Ballet Theatre Chronicles, and Outside the Limelight, Book 2, HERE and HERE respectively. And as mentioned above, A Dancer’s Guide to Africa, is now available!
Take a look around, enjoy, cross-pollinate. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if I can feature something performing arts related that you’d love to have more information on. Come visit me on my Classical Girl Facebook page, as well, and if you like my blog here, I’d love you to “like” me there, too! If you prefer Twitter, my handle is @classicalgrrl — give me a follow and I’ll follow you back!
Thanks again for stopping by.
