Sleeping Beauty Preview

4 posts in this topic

A video clip of Ben Stevenson's Sleeping Beauty was recently added to HB's website. The preview features dancers Simon Ball, previously of Boston Ballet, and Mireille Hassenboehler. I met both of them at Houston's annual Theater District Open House, which I was volunteering at; both were very friendly, and I can't wait to see the two of them dance this season (hopefully together in SB). I asked the HB Guild members if a roster of all the new dancers was out yet, and they just kept telling me to check the website. The casting for the Fall Repertory, including Forsythe's In the middle, is not up yet, either. They usually post a couple of weeks in advance. I will keep you informed as more information comes up.

Thank you, Ms. Leigh!

I was aware that Barbara Bears has returned to the company. She was another dancer I saw at open house, and I didn't recognize her for a second! :blushing: Can't wait to see her back on stage again.
