Melody Herrera's Marie Diary

Dance Spirit has Melody Herrera's Marie diary. For those of you not in the know, Marie is a ballet by Stanton Welch about everyone's favorite monarch to hate, Marie Antoinette. I personally love Marie Antoinette because I was awesome enough to have played her during my World History class's role play of the French Revolution.

However, I also enjoy this article on a different level. I enjoy that dancers are writing about their dancing. I personally have problems writing about dance. This is the main focus of this blog. This is a way to force me to write about dance because I think about it all the time, might as well write about it.

Mm anyways, enjoy.

  1. Thanks for this! I recently wrote about Marie (I live in Houston and do some dance writing there). This is an interesting read! I love hearing about all the character development and research that the dancers got to delve into. So much of dance is acting (perhaps a slightly different breed of acting but still acting) and people forget that sometimes.

    As a dancer and mom myself I also like hearing about other moms who are dancing! Here's an article about Melody. And another HB dancer/mom, Sara Webb, talks about returning to the stage as a mom.. And, yes, I love that dance artists are writing about their art and their lives!
