The Official Legs of California Ballet, Revealed!

New Gatsby bubbles 700x420

You’ve seen the legs all over town in San Diego. They’re on billboards. They’ve been online. They’ve been in the newspaper. Perhaps you went to see a production at The Old Globe or the San Diego Civic Theatre, opened the program . . . and there they were: legs in mid-Charleston proclaiming that The Great Gatsby is coming to San Diego!


Did you ever wonder to whom those legs might belong?


It is our pleasure to introduce the Official Legs of the California Ballet:

Brigitte Edwards



Brigitte has been a part of the California Ballet family for a very long time. She started as a little girl  in the California Ballet School, a focused and dedicated student. She swiftly advanced through the class levels and has become a young accomplished dancer. While she excels in ballet, she received training in jazz, contemporary, musical theater, and even flamenco! Always seeking to expand her training and expertise, Brigitte spent the last five summers training with the School of American Ballet.


If you’re a California Ballet fan, you’ve seen Brigitte onstage many times. She’s appeared in Sleeping Beauty as the White Cat, A Midsummer Night’s Dream as a Fairy, and The Nutcracker as a very memorable Clara and most recently as the Snow Queen.


Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve used her leg. California Ballet is proud of our Sharing the Art program. A part of this program is our Military Night at the Ballet. Every year we offer hundreds of complimentary tickets to members of the military and their family. Brigitte’s legs made their first appearance as the Official Legs of the California Ballet two years ago in this wonderful image!



We are so very proud of Brigitte and all of her artistic accomplishments, and we are delighted to introduce her to you. Look for her onstage in The Great Gatsby this weekend, and again in The Nutcracker this December – both at the San Diego Civic Theatre.
