Do You Know the Ballet Alphabet???

We're back in the San Francisco Shoe Room for this one! In our never-ending cruise along the banks of the ballet internet, we take a delightful little detour to visit the artistry of Australian Ballet. Uploaded to YouTube in 2019, Josephine gets to watch "A to Z En Pointe." This delightful and cinematic video takes a ballet spin on the 26 characters of the Latin alphabet. Which letter bit is your favorite?

A short and quick episode for the holiday - be sure to give screens a break and spend time with loved ones! Josephine is enjoying being a mother to our first Pointe Shop Baby, Dio!
