Daily Stuff - Whew! Today was the dedication of the aforementioned Performing Arts Center in the South Bay. I was asked if the San Diego Ballet would be willing to have guest performers at the dedication and I, of course, said yes. I thought it would be a good way for this year's Juliet, Stephanie Maiorano, to begin getting familiar with the part. I also thought it would be a nice way to see a newer dancer with the company partner her a bit. All was set yesterday afternoon, and costumes were allotted. Then late last night, I got a message that Stephanie's partner had become ill and would not be able to do the show. So a quick scramble and rearrangement this morning freed up Max from some teaching assignments, so he could go down and do the job. The thing is that Max and Steph had not rehearsed together. One quick run through onstage and the audience never knew that there had been any change in plans. they did a lovely job.
On a personal note, caught up with many old friends and students. Nice
