A lovely meeting with Sara Mearns, principal dancer at the New York City Ballet

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Last Sunday I met the beautiful, talented and charming prima ballerina from the New York City Ballet, Sara Mearns. We share a dear friend in common, Marc Happel, the Director of Costumes at the New York City Ballet. Sara was in Paris for three weeks of performances. Sunday was her only free day. She started dancing at the age of three and by the time she turned twelve she knew that this was the career path for her. Click the video above if you want to hear more.
