BalletMet is coming to New York

4 posts in this topic

I copied all of the following information right off of our website.

It's such an honor for us to be chosen.

I've watched the company my parents founded grow from a handful of dancers to the amazingly talented bunch we have today.

This is a proud moment for me.

I hope many of you will come to see us at The Joyce.

I posted a link in the "Links" section of BalletTalk to the Cleveland Plain Dealer and Wilma Salisbury's review of "Evolution: Mozart To Moby" if any of you are interested.

She didn't particularly care for it!
