Program Notes…

When Ashley Bouder approached Lauren Lovette and I about commissioning a ballet, we decided to do a portrait in three movements of Ashley's life. The  perpetual determination that a young ballerina requires in her thousands of hours of class before she takes the center stage, the comfort of finding true love amongst the noise of humanity, and the awe and attention that plant deep with the advent of motherhood are all encapsulated in this work.
