etc: happy ballet day!

did you know February 7th is ballet day? well, it is!  i first saw it on mimi + meg's February calendar of celebrations but thought it was too good to be true.  well lo and behold - true! check it out:
"On February 7, 1827, French ballet was introduced to the United States with a performance of "The Deserter," staged at the Bowery Theater in New York. For that reason, today is considered by some Americans as Ballet Day." [source]
 AWESOME!  in celebration, i'm going to share with you one of my fave dance videos ever.  Polina Semionova is a true ballet goddess and this music video is proof.  i'll never stop loving this video, and never stop loving her passion.  enjoy :

p.s.  it's also my parents' anniversary.  so it's an extra-special day :)
