One of our two Juliets (we had two casts) giving herself and extra “warm up” on stage before the dress rehearsal.

Love the shots from Romeo & Juliet. The arches served as good isolators of the dancers by providing dark framing for the exposers.
I love ballet, therefore these shots are most dear to me. And, you always do justice to your dancer friends, Lord Montague.
Photos of the theater's internal structure give a good scale of everything. I appreciate that you are also uploading architectural elements that make up the surroundings. (I love architecture too.)
Merry Christmas and happy Holidays to you and to everyone on the PhotoClubAlpha forum. Enjoy and don't forget to shoot photos and share!
Yildiz, I’m glad to hear that you love ballet. But you should not encourage me too much. I might start uploading hundreds (maybe thousands) of ballet photos in the topic threads.
Happy Holidays, Yildiz! Wesołych świąt, everybody!

They are very nice actually. Photo shooting is about luck, hard work and a keen eye… You have a wonderful subject for luck, and you tried hard with a fine eye to get the good shots but there's bound to be lovely yet not so good results.
There's some good drama and acting in these shots as well as dancing and neat costumes.
Thanks for sharing,

Thanks for sharing, David Antony. They do dance so beautifully...
And thanks, David, for checking out the St. Louis Ballet videos and sharing the link.
The few of us older dancers that are still around are very proud of the younger dancers. Over the years, the company has grown a lot, and continues to grow more than any of us could have ever imagined. I feel very fortunate whenever I get to be on stage with them.
Here are several shots of us older guys sitting around in the dressing room. This happens a lot between shows, so I often just play around with my camera. The 3 of us (and a couple of others) have been on stage together for more than two decades, so we often reminisce about the “old days”.

Rather than gluing on a fake beard for the show, I spent 3 months growing a real one. I colored it using white cake makeup foundation, and a large black eyebrow pencil. When I first started growing the beard, I was hoping that everyone would think that I looked like Thor, but no, they only thought that I looked really really really old, so I shaved it off as soon as the last show was over.
