One of my favorite memories growing up was seeing Swan Lake performed at the San Francisco Ballet as a child. My mother took me exactly one time when I was about 5 or 6 years old. Hearing the first few magical intro notes to "four little swans" always reminds me of Christmas. I was so inspired by the performance, I asked my mom for ballet lessons. I ended up taking lessons at Ballet Russo on Clement Street. Photo provided by google earth- HAHA. I lasted maybe two years being a tiny ballerina. But as everyone knows, as a five year old, I was probably already over the hill. It was one of the first activities I tried and quit so ballet and my Russian ballet teacher will always have a special place in my heart. Merry Christmas!
