So, BAE’s (Ballet Academy East, NYC) artistic director hosted a “casual brunch” at her beautiful home in Connecticut back in May. The brunch was for a small group of the current Young Dancers Division Instructors & Pre-Proffessional Division Alumni Instructors. Her way of saying thank you for your dedication.
(Back-drop) Two years ago, I was a part-time student instructor. After working 7:30am-5:30pm, I would rush off to BAE to work with students auditioning for, The Juilliard School – Dance Division. So you can imagine just how flattered I was to have received my first invite to the gathering.
I’ve heard nothing but great things about the brunch. Though the invite stated “casual”, I reached out to a fellow instructor who was in attendance three years ago. She told me some wear dresses, others wear jeans and several people will be in leggings, a tank and a waterfall cardigan (typical attire of the more mature instructors).
Me, I went with an embroidered floral skirt by the folks that do it best. Sachin & Babi have some of the most intricate patterns & richest color palettes there are. I must say, their line at Anthropologie doesn’t disappoint, coming in at an average price point of $250. As you may know….that’s a bargain.
I have to be honest, I was shocked to see almost all of the guest in such dark colors. Deep down on the inside, I was delighted to be that breathe of fresh air in the room. (Tooting my own horn).
