Festival Ballet runs on…Seven Stars Bakery, of course! We’re kicking off a new series to help you get to know the FBP dancers- join us for a quick coffee break between rehearsals!
First up, we caught up with Company Dancer, Beth Mochizuki, and her sweet, silly son Stefen for a chat and and afternoon pick-me-up.
Beth’s drink order: Hot decaf coffee
Stefan’s drink order: Apple juice
Treat of choice: Soppressata sandwich
When we last checked in with Beth, she was preparing to dance Maid Marian in Mary Ellen Beadreau’s “Robin Hood”, a role the whole family was looking forward to seeing her portray.
“Stefen’s very excited to see the show! We checked out the picture book of Robin Hood from the library and we’ve been making our way through the story at home, so he’ll be fully prepared when he comes to the ballet.”
Born in California, Beth came to New England to study at Tufts University in Boston. While earning her Bachelor of Arts degree in American Studies, Beth managed to also begin her professional dancing career with an Apprenticeship at Festival Ballet. Talk about multitasking!
Stay tuned on our Instagram for more coffee chats with the dancers of FBP and Seven Stars Bakery!
