The did a mixed program with pieces of Don Q, Romeo and Juliet, Sleeping beauty, Le Corsair and even some tap dancing!!
Alina Cojocaru, Johan Kobborg, Venus Villa, David Makhateli and two dancers that I forgot the name of, will now be travelling to Japan to perform for a month and then they will be off to tour in the U.S.
I hope you have a chance to see them.

Was the tap dancing the excerpt from La Fille Mal Gardee where the Widow Simone dances in clogs, accompanied in part by four girls?

I thought that dance battle was a hip hop thing?, but it was fantastic to see these great dancers try to outdo each other.
Kobborg started off with a amazing solo number, David Makhateli and Steven Mc Rae was yawning and tried to look very unimpressed.
Mc Rae answered with a fantastic tap number and he really got the audience with him , to Kobborgs annoyance .
David Makhateli refused to participate in the battle but he was forced to dance by Kobborg and Mc Rae, and acting very unwilling, he finally did a couple of grand jetes.
Well the three combattants ended up as princes dancing the rose adagio with Alina Cojocaru.

Does any one have information on the US portion of the tour -- and under what name they will be touring?

Nonetheless, McRae tap dancing live? Fabulous. A mega-star-super-talent-watch-me-know-cuz-if-you-blink-you'll-miss-it type guy.
