still looking for something to do with your valentine this weekend?  i recently received an email about the ‘sleeping beauty’ pnb performances running last weekend and this one (tickets still available), it got me thinking that i probably wouldn’t know a dancer on the street if i saw one, and wondering what they wear on a daily, off-stage basis.

lindsi and karel were kind enough to let me get a peek.  their street style was easy… their office gear more involved.  during class lindsi (blue pants) is wearing 4 layers.  FOUR!  and there’s no way that room was any chillier than 75 degrees.

slippers at work.

since i wasn’t cleared to randomly shoot whoever i wanted, let me assure you, if i’m invited back, i’ll capture every amazing leg warmer in the room.  dancers have serious layering style that i’d love to take a page from…  in the meantime, look for lindsi and karel in performances of ‘sleeping beauty’ starting tonight and going through sunday.  some shots of them at work… courtesy of pnb and angela sterling.
