Inspired by Haiku-heights September Challenge ~ Day 5 ~ Ballet
In the 1960s I was still living in Stratford on Avon studying A Levels at Shottery Manor, which was the Girl’s Grammar School. I have written a post before about the unforgettable year that was 1964 ~ Shakespeare’s quartercentenary. I was totally immersed in the Shakespeare memorial Theatre at that time and met many very interesting and exciting people. One of those who stands out for me was Rudolph Nureyev. He had only recently begun his life-changing dance partnership with Margot Fonteyn. Who could ever forget their performance of Romeo and Juliet ? It could be that he is responsible for my deep connection with the Russian culture, language, and people.
Devoted to dance
A picture of perfection
Two souls become one
September started off very busy for me so posting my haiku has been a challenge too far! However I think I have caught up now so if you have time you can read my earlier posts here:
