All Balanchine

The house.

Old ushers.  Young girls with their mothers. 

The stage. 

Toe-shoe, tutu,

Turn  the toile, tulle-étoile,

Arch-crouching, crouch-arching

Weightless revolving

The hundred-pound foot-flutter,

Pad, leap, land.

The hall.

All red curtains, steep seats

Low light serious art.
