It is so fun to see what various companies do in presenting, The Nutcracker Ballet (and pretty fun to find they are wearing our tutus when doing it!).

In Aspen Santa Fe Ballet’s Nutcracker, instead of the Land of the Sweets, Clara is brought to a beautiful turn-of-the-century carousel, complete with blinking light bulbs and vintage carousel animals.  We found this photo of Aspen Santa Fe Ballet’s “Flowers” wearing  Class Act Tutus posted in the Photo Essay: Nutcrackers Around the Nation Display Regional Flair from PBS.   Check Aspen Santa Fe Ballet’s performance information on their website and get your tickets to see this lovely version of The Nutcracker Ballet.

These Waltz of the Flowers Tutus feature Class Act Tutu’s Scoop Neck Bodice with  a Color-Layered Romantic Tutu with Basque.  Embellishment by the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet Costume Shop.

PNB’s Lindsi Dec – Seizing Her Moment

“Lindsi Dec steps out from the “Rubies” corps, lowering her arms slowly, a flash in her eyes. And then she bursts into action, her 5′ 9″ worth of angular beauty unfurling into head-high extensions. Darting and slinking through Balanchine’s hip-jutting steps, the Pacific Northwest Ballet soloist is having the time of her life. And so is the audience.” – Pointe Magazine

A huge “congratulations!” to Pacific Northwest Ballet soloist (and Vala Dancewear model), Lindsi Dec, the featured artist in the October/November issue of Pointe Magazine! Read all about Lindsi’s rise to fame here.

{PS: On page 10, Lindsi is modeling one of Class Act Tutu’s Layered Romantic Tutus. Don’t miss it!}


Sightings: Dancing with a Tesla!

We just never know where our tutus might end up. Here is Sara Michell Murawski, Corps de Ballet,  Dresden Semperoper Ballet “partnering” with the Tesla Roadster Sport!

This was a Class Act Bell Style Tutu in Tangerine purchased from our Sale section.  Thank you, Sara.  We just love a creative use of a tutu!

{Sightings!} The Resurrection of Giselle…

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

As we first reported way back in September, Class Act Tutu received the HUGE honor of having our white romantic tutu skirt used in the photo shoot for Pacific Northwest Ballet’s upcoming production of Giselle.

Completely re-staged and based entirely on the original 1841 Stepanov notation, PNB’s Giselle resurrects the long forgotten subtleties and complexities of ballet’s greatest – and most beloved – tragedy.  We cannot wait to see it.

Here are some videos produced by Pacific Northwest Ballet including – what else? – our tutu skirt!  The first is all about the creation of the actual Giselle poster, while the second features actual footage from the photo shoot itself. Enjoy!  (PS: Amanda Clark – you look gorgeous!)
