Plie chasse jete all day

Oh how I adore these bags designed by Chip Chop for the Australian Ballet.

Alas, they're already sold out, so I'll just have to pout and be sad.

Speaking of the Australian Ballet, though, have you seen "Mao's Last Dancer"?  The film is inspired by the story of ballet dancer Li Cunxin, who defected from China to the U.S. in the 70's and went on to dance as a principal with the Australian Ballet.

The acting is somewhat uneven (Amanda Schull of "Center Stage" fame could use a few more acting lessons) and the plot couldn't be more maudlin or the dialogue more wooden ("I dance better here.  Because feel more . . . free." Blech!), but the dancing is gorgeous, as is Chi Cao, who plays Li.

Hope you're enjoying your Labor Day!
