Picture This: Scarlett London


“This is a picture of the ‘end of camp performance’ last summer at Interlochen, which is in northern Michigan. It was a piece with six other dancers and we were all at different levels, from beginning to advanced. It was a really cute piece because we had a pianist and the pianist wrote the music for his wife, who got to see it for the first time at the show. For our costume, we all wore the same sheer black skirt but we all got to wear our own black leotards so they were all unique. The piece was about the music and movement, it was one of my favorite dances I’ve ever done. It felt like we were telling a story while we danced. It was like a love letter from the pianist to his wife.”
