With Romeo & Juliet opening in just a few days, we asked our company dancers about THEIR first loves. Hopefully the stories aren’t as tragic…
My first love was a girl named Celeste that I dated for two years. Then she dated my best friend and I at the same time before breaking up with us on the same day. I was 8. [Ed note: Paul will be tweeting during this weekend’s performances. Follow him at www.twitter.com/balletaustin. Look for tweets signed ^PB.]
My first love was the childlike empress from the Never Ending Story… Turns out I just wanted to be her.
My first love is my husband of 9 wonderful years, Ambrose Krumpe. We met when I was 18. I knew he was ‘the one for me’ when he used a coupon on our first date!
I met my first love at a music store. Upon first sight, I knew immediately she was to be my first love… She was an Everett Upright Piano. We’ve been together for 3 months.
Todd, my best friend. He is my first and only love. We met two years ago, fell in love a year after that, and four weeks ago he proposed. [Ed note: Congrats, Beth!]
Most people would say that “ballet” was my first love, but in all seriousness I would have to say my husband Rhys Ulerich. [Ed note: Michelle will be tweeting during Sunday’s performance. Follow her at www.twitter.com/balletaustin. Look for tweets signed ^MT.]
I thought my first love was JTT (Jonathan Taylor Thomas). Little did I know, I would finally find true love years later in my husband… also named Jonathan!
