Russians in Florence
My friend and I were rendezvousing at the Piazza San Marco recently and noticed that there was music pouring out of the door leading to a small cortile to the left of the church. We followed the sound and happened upon a troupe of Russian singers and dancers who were performing in the beautiful autumn afternoon under the 500 year old roof of the cortile.

I love to visit this beautiful shop in Paris! I may not wear tutus anymore, but I still love them! And toe shoes, and tights. Tutus and toe shoes and leotards, oh my!

Have you seen this? I am late to this party. World of Dance is a fun show on American tv and this group knocked me out!
