    This first week back to work has been really exciting. We’re welcoming back our family of dancers and greeting those new members of the Company and Studio Company. In the last week, the studios have been buzzing with rehearsals, fittings and visits by guest artists. Speaking of visitors, Sandy Jennings is here staging Theme and Variations, Edwaard Liang is working on his world premiere – which will be performed as part of Bowie and Queen, The Washington Ballet’s Luis R. Torres is staging Juanity y Alicia on the Studio Company and TWB’s Michelle Jimenez has begun staging Carmen on the trainees.

    After a dizzying four days in Amsterdam the next stop was Paris. Despite the fact that I have been to Paris many times, there was SO MUCH to take in and I largely did it from the saddle of a bike.  Paris’ VELIB bike-sharing system is terrific and it was such a joy to speed through the city.  I visited the new Frank Gehry-designed Louis Vuitton Foundation in the Bois de Boulogne, which is a knock-out; stopped off at the astonishing Palais de Tokyo—a mecca for out-sized contemporary art instillations that sits across the Seine from the Eiffel Tower; and attended the Saint Laurent Foundation’s jewel-box of an exhibition about Yves Saint Laurent’s scandalous 1971 show.

    I’m on the Thalys fast-train from Amsterdam to Paris after four remarkably productive (and fun) days in Amsterdam.  The city was enjoying its first blissful days of summer weather as I biked around the canals and sat in cafes sipping wittbier (the delicious Dutch wheat beer, which is served Dutch style: only sorta cold). Not only did I do some adventure-seeking, I got some serious ballet business done too.
