Yer welcome.

Awesome.

William Luse said...

Hopefully she'll see your comment.

Bravo! Surprised she can twirl that much without getty dizzy.

William Luse said...

Those forte (sp?) turns at the end - she can do about a hundred consecutively.

TS said...

Wowsa. I get dizzy doing five turns on the riding mower.

Next time, a bit bigger picture would be nice.

You wouldn't happen to be taking some Guiness along for the ride, would you?

I shot it in compact mode, which lowers the megabytes and speeds loading. The bigger the picture the fuzzier it gets. A standard video of the same length would come to (guessing) 100 megabytes or more, and take forever to upload. But I might try it next time.

I couldn't believe all those turns at the end without putting both feet down. I'm entirely ignorant about ballet, but it sure was impressive.

Proof that practice is not limited to the studio or the stage.

Ellyn said...

Marvelous!

And she makes it look sooo easy.
(So deceptively easy :) )

William Luse said...

I'll have to say, Ellyn, that even after all these years I'm newly bowled over every time I watch her.

What a champion!

Bernadette said...

She is so beautiful and I'm sure that is Elizabeth's coreography too!! Funny, watching her dance in the kitchen was far more interesting than watching most of Paul's coreography!!! Although, I'd watch Ebes dance to just about anything - even stripper music in a grocery store:)

Elena said...

How fun! I watched it with my little girl and she is now imitating her in my kitchen!

William Luse said...

Bern, she choreographed (notice the spelling) it in her head in about 5 minutes.

Elena, She wouldn't be the first little girl to do so. Ebe also happens to be a good teacher and kids love her. Btw, she was in Akron again recently at that tire magnate's mansion for her friend's wedding. I've got lots of pictures of the grounds.

Wow! That's awesome, and I admire anyone who can even WALK through a kitchen without banging into something. To think she can turn and turn and turn.

Too cool. (Plus she's beautiful, too. How fair is THAT?)

William Luse said...

I've never really thought about it in terms of fairness. Beauty is either an accident of nature or a gift from above. I suppose it's fair if one is careful to acknowledge the latter.

Bernadette said...

I thought I spelled it wrong :)

William Luse said...

Aren't you going to comment on your own picture in the post above?

Bernadette said...

no way. I think I look fat and my position at the top doesn't look that good to me...

William Luse said...

What's wrong with your position at the top?
