.@peballet was a sold-out success! It was hard to get a lot of reviewers out because they didn’t know whether to put us in music or dance. We’ll just have to do it again! :) Photo by @discopupils…more pics soon!

Potential Energies #RollCall!

Susan Philipp, Dancer

What #potentialenergies means to me: A realization that one’s initial hopes and dreams are not concrete. Allowing oneself the space to let them evolve and change.

My #ifnotnowwhen moment: Deciding instantaneously to work toward my yoga certification. Something just felt “right” about it at that particular moment. Since then, it has been giving back to me every step of the way!

Potential Energies #RollCall!

Cara McGaughey, Dancer

What #potentialenergies means to me: Potential Energies is an opportunity for 12 people to say something on a grander scale and share their journeys. From personal experience, we all have learned that opportunities are not always as plentiful as we grew up thinking they would be. So we created one.

My #ifnotnowwhen moment: Tonight I’m going to take 5, maybe 10 minutes to complain about everything I have to complain about, from work to subways to “Walker’s Rage”, so I can go to bed cleansed and wake up renewed.

Potential Energies #RollCall!Mara Mayer, ClarinetWhat #potentialenergies means to me: The deep questioning that many young adults go through in early stages of their careers: I know I have the potential to do this, but will I be able to make it happen? For me this is the central question being explored in our ballet. My #ifnotnowwhen moment: Deciding to move to Costa Rica to work as a research assistant for a primatologist. I believe that creativity is at the core of both the arts and sciences. Not surprisingly, this experience also became great fodder for creating art.
