I am so thrilled to finally show this to all of you! This is a dance film of the ballet The Red Shoes, choreographed specifically for me by the amazing Donald Garverick.

All of my wonderful collaborators’ information is below!

Her adoptive mother becomes ill, but the peasant girl deserts her, preferring to attend a party in her red shoes, where she celebrates by showing them off…. But the shoes had a different idea….
