I had the pleasure of working with Claire Esielionis this past weekend. She is due to start auditioning this year as she graduates from Pacific Northwest Ballet School. She traveled down from New Hampshire with her parents to work with me for a day and we had so much fun.
We had Viola, a trusted Makeup artist on board to cover up a black eye she sustained from an ‘accident’ at the National summer school (what we in Toronto call the NB of C). Too bad the story didn’t involve some complicated lift in pas class, but instead a friend with a really heavy metal waterbottle!
