If anyone is in the Washington DC area and is going to this I would love to hear any feedback. I wish I could see all these talented students dancing in one performance but unfortunately due to my own rehearsal schedule I am unable to get away. My DK is performing in this event as part of the Royal Ballet School performance of David Bintley's Galantries. If anyone plans on going and would be so kind as to post their reactions to it would be greatly appreciated. :)
