Feast For the Senses: A Visual Dance Feast

Most of us are busy getting ready for the Thanksgiving holiday. Maybe you’re one of those people braving the rabid masses at Trader Joe’s or you were one of the smart people who planned ahead and shopped before things started getting manic.

Maybe you’re just looking forward to having a few days off and wearing your pajamas more than you ought to.

However you define Thanksgiving it is meant to be a celebratory holiday, where we give thanks for the blessings in our lives and feast with loved ones. Since I can’t provide a feast that you can taste in real life, I thought I would provide a feast of a different sort: a feast of the senses. Dance style, of course.

Because dance is very much a visual art form, a visual feast is the most appropriate place to begin. As a lover of all things tutu, all things creative and all things color, these tasty morsels are a few of my favorites. Feast and enjoy.

Diablo Ballet celebrates their 20th anniversary this spring. This delicious Bay Area company may be small in size, but has one of the most diverse rosters around, with dancers hailing from Tokyo, Venezuela and the Ukraine.

May you feast and enjoy your blessings this holiday.
