A few weeks ago while we were filming our new campaign video, Bruce Simpson took us to the basement of the Louisville Ballet building and revealed a dancer’s paradise. Thousands of costumes of every kind and shoes everywhere!  I couldn’t believe my eyes.  I just knew we had to come back and film a video blog from the Louisville Ballet’s closet.  Watch my video below and learn the secret to dancing on your toes. Here we go just in time for their season opener Lady of the Camellias at the Kentucky Center on Friday, October 5th.

Join me for this exclusive behind the scenes look at a dancers wardrobe and all those shoes…

From Lacrosse player to Ballet Costume Master, Dan Fredie tells all in his “Spotlight Video” below…
