As you can tell from my last blog, we just finished up our Fall Program and now will be incredibly busy working a new world premiere as well as Nutcracker...but true to form, there's more...I also have something else exciting to focus on! I invite you all to circle November 8th on your calendar for the Career Transition for Dancers 25th Anniversary Silver Jubilee Gala in New York City. It is going to be an amazing night where some of the best of the dance community will be gathered for one great performance (see the list below). I myself will be performing the Light Rain pas de deux (choreographed by Gerald Arpino) with Valerie Robin. I've performed it many many times and it is always a pleasure time and time again to perform such a wonderful pas.
Here is the link. Please check it out!
