Today is day three as BalletMet’s new marketing intern. Day one I showed off my superior sorting skills in the box office. Day two I practiced my rockin’ bundling abilities with flyers, sat in on an awesome Columbus Dispatch photo shoot, and got a tour of this amazing facility. Today has been deemed “start our fantastic blog again day” and I’m elated to be taking the reins!
A little bit about me… My name is Nicole and I’m a junior at The Ohio State University. I’m a strategic communication major with a minor in dance. At the age of three, my mom put me in my first dance class. Seventeen years later, I still haven’t left and I never plan on leaving. I know that dance will always hold an important place in my life, whether it’s through teaching, performing, creating, promoting, or viewing.
Growing up in the Columbus area, I’ve been a lifer of The Nutcracker. The holiday season isn’t complete without the annual escapade downtown to the Ohio Theatre. I’m so excited to learn more about what BalletMet’s academy and company does in the community, behind the scenes, and on the stage. I hope you are too!
This blog will keep you up to date on BalletMet events, while also providing a special sneak peak of everything that goes into them! I’ll be interviewing our celebrities, aka our dancers. I’ll be posting tons of pictures, videos, and backstage info about how the magic happens here at BalletMet.
I look forward to taking this journey with you! Check back frequently!
That being said – the 2009-2010 BalletMet season continues on Friday, Feb. 5 with the enchanted A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Capitol Theatre.
(Hint: This might be a fantastic Valentine’s Day date idea! Midsummer will surely put the love in the air!)
