Thanks, Cristian. I am truly glad that they are continuing the performance in West Palm. They self-produce at the Kravis, and did not do enough publicity to get much of an audience last year, although the year before the house was almost full. Despite some problems, there was a good deal of wonderful and even exciting dancing. I'll be there. Keep us informed about developments! :)

Thanks for the update, cubanmiamiboy. I'll be there for the Kravis "Classical and Neoclassical Program" with plenty of fingers crossed after the debacle last year.

The promotes list 17 companies for that program. In theory, this should be great -- lot's of dancing, no? But in reality -- I'm terrified that they didn't learn from last year, when the program went on and on and on, aimlessly and without any structure or dramatic buildup.

It's unfair to the wonderful dancers to set things up so that a large part of the audience becomes drained of stamina and interest long before the end.
