Dance, dance, and dance some more. One of the most beautiful things to do and it’s origins are nostalgic to me, the ballet and the school of ballet are wonderful memories. The dance school is something we can always return to over the course of our life. Maybe not ballet past a certain age but there are so many forms of dance including modern, funk, chakra, Salsa, Tango, Ballroom, the list goes on and they are all timeless and have elements of the traditional. The classic ballet is still a wonder that many enjoy and the modern interpretations like those of the Australian Ballet or the Ballet de l’Opéra national de Paris are fresh and inspiring. If you are traveling or at home and one of the amazing dance companies comes your way it is well worth the ticket. One of the most beautiful opera houses is la Scala in Milano. You can find a magnificent calandar of opera, ballet, theatre and concerts. http://www.teatroallascala.org/en/index.html The same can be said for the Opera National De Paris http://www.operadeparis.fr/cns11/live/onp/ but I would also suggest to you the caberet show Crazy Horse which is avant garde caberet show (a more intimate and sexier version of Le Girls) http://www.lecrazyhorseparis.com/ Don’t miss Black Swan directed by Darren Aronofsky with Natalie Portman and Vincent Cassel. Natalie Portman makes a truly amazing performance.Between the 17th of September and 11th of December you can find “Degas Dancers: Eye and Camera at Royal Academy of Arts in London.
