Opening of the season 2019

I am officially into my 5th season at the Paris Opera Ballet. The company opened its anniversary season (It's been 350 years!) on 20th September. For the first time since I entered the company, I performed after the défilé in Forsythe's BlakeWorks I. Here are some highlights from the evening: Students waiting for défilé rehearsal...

BlakeWorks I by Forsythe, feeling grateful

Two days ago, I was back on this stage, this beautiful and raked stage of the Palais Garnier. The rake seemed steeper than in my memory. Anyway, there's still something magical about this stage. We were having our first stage rehearsal of BlakeWorks I, that we will be shortly performing in the program Sugimoto/Forsythe in... Continue Reading →

Le Coq Sportif X Opéra de Paris

Le Coq Sportif created a new collection of sweatsuit that is designed for dancers. We first received Le Coq Sportif products for our last tour to Asia. The... Continue Reading →

Parisian-ballet life~

So after a quite a long time spent in Asia, for two and a half months, I am back to this Parisian-ballet life, back to reading in the metro line number 9 every morning while heading to the Opera, ballet classes and rehearsals at the Palais Garnier, feeling excited at grocery shopping on the way...

For that, we had one extra dress rehearsal Saturday afternoon which was the second and last rehearsal on stage that I had before the proper... Continue Reading →

Enjoying the stage~

Yesterday I did our second performance in Sleight of Hand. Once again, how myself react to each performance took me by surprise. Although the conditions are exactly the same for a dress rehearsal, a Generale and a proper performance, how I feel on stage is totally different. In a real performance, I feel much more...

The preparation is going very well, I very much appreciate the opportunity to meet these wonderful choreographers, Paul Lightfoot and Sol Léon, but also two... Continue Reading →

Another week done~

Weekend!!~ I am pretty satisfied with past week's work. It was another week of productivity, and I confirm that I like it. Ending the day telling myself, "I've done a lot", is satisfying. On Wednesday, my mental coach reminded me to "talk to myself" in a kind way. Instead of thinking "Oh, I am not... Continue Reading →

Rehearsal with water~

The rehearsals of the Paul Lightfoot program is going very well. This week, to prepare for the ballet Speak for Yourself, in which we will dance in the rain (yes~!) around the end of the piece, they put water in one of the studios so that we can get prepared and get used to dancing...
