How many people knew that Darla Hoover co-choreographed Allegro Brilliante? Or that Maria Calegari helped choreograph Mozartiana? Ugh. Thanks for the news release, Dale, but that was a waste of two bucks.

Not that I can't afford $1.99, but I can't believe they're charging for it!

Same here... It's an app that promotes ABT... Why on earth isn't it free? I couldn't figure out why I would want to pay for it...? Surely I missed something?
