2 posts in this topic


Corella/Tuttle and Cojocaru/Kobborg are among the ballet dancers scheduled to perform at City Center in the "Career Transitions for Dancers" Benefit on 10/27. I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place but I haven't seen mention of this elsewhere on the site and I thought some of the NY based members would be interested. It's a gala benefit, so the good seats are really expensive but the seats in the rear mezanine - rear gallery go for $45 - $20.

Here are the details from the City Cener site
