After that I got to dance a contemporary pas de deux at a local tango performance with a well known choreographer and dancer in the area. It was to an instrumental NIN song, I wore one pointe shoe and we did some really fun and crazy lifts and partnering. It was a great experience to work with him (he was a principal dancer at Colorado Ballet for years) because he is one of the best partners I've ever danced with and is such a creative and talented choreographer. Best of all I know I grew as an artist and dancer through it all.
