When I was very young I had an interest in Ballet. An elementary school teacher introduced us to classical music and I began listening to it on my own. The Nutcracker Suite was something that caused my imagination to fly off into the land of dance. Listening to the Moonlight Sonata, Agnes De Mille’s Rodeo, and then being exposed to all of the musicals on television was shear heaven. I remember reading up about Ballet Dancers and Maria Tallchief was one of them. Several well know women have passed away this week. A few lived long and productive lives. Today, I think this dancer with a recent photo I took. May her legacy live on in the hearts of those that love and appreciate the arts…
