Their website mentions the April shows (but doesn't give any program information) and doesn't have anything about June dates. Could you tell me where to find more up-to-date information about June -- I may be in NYC at that time and am very curious about what performances are available.

This link will take you to the company's website.

I saw their all-Tudor program either last year or in 2004. I enjoyed the evening very much and was impressed with the dancers sensitivity to their material. Their Lilac Garden may have been the most moving I've seen.
