Ballet BC and Acacia SchachteFriday, February 17, 2006
Fresh from learning her dance at Arts Umbrella and a new dancer for Ballet British Columbia I photographed Acacia Schachte in Sept 1999 with dancer Terri Gardener. Last week I photographed Acacia again to mark her final performances for Ballet BC this week. My wife Rosemary rarely likes anything so I have been amazed on how she enjoys Acacia's dancing. Acacia has a style all her own and I can only compare her movements to some that I have seen by Evelyn Hart. Acacia is off to dance in the world - New York, Europe? But Rebecca (who assisted me last Friday to help relax Acacia in front of my camera) and I will be there this Saturday night for her last dance.
