If you're like me, your reaction to seeing a good ballet performance is a toddler-like "Do that AGAIN! I wanna see that AGAIN!"
So, to feed the inner toddler of those of you who were at the Stars of the 21st Century gala in Toronto last night, and as a treat suitable for a leisurely Sunday afternoon for those of you who couldn't make it, I have compiled a YouTube version with many of the pieces and dancers we saw. Enjoy!
