SideLines: Local dance company impresses
I kept looking for him, but he never showed up.
In March, I went to “A Storybook Ballet,” an original production by the Beth Fowler School of Dance. I’m not really big on ballet – the only other one I’ve ever seen is “The Nutcracker” in Chicago – but I had done a preview story on the show and had heard so much about the Genoa-based dance company, I was curious to see it.
As I was sitting at the Egyptian Theatre, watching the action unfold, my mind kept going back to an old episode of “Two and A Half Men.” Jake, 10, tries out with a local ballet company to impress the lady director he has a crush on. On opening night, the other dancers – all girls – are on stage when the curtain opens and Jake walks out, dressed like a duck or something. He takes one look around, then utters the immortal line, “No woman is worth this,” before turning around and calling it a day.
