Tiler Peck was in DC attending Kennedy Center-related events, which is usually a good sign that a performance is part of the plan, especially when the Secretary of State invites a person to dinner.

Marcelo Gomes just sent out this instagram/Twitter wth Julie Kent in what looks like a formal reception room. I wonder if he'll be dancing at the Kennedy Center honors, too:

I believe the State Department dinner was Saturday night and the program at the Kennedy Center is Sunday night, 12/2. It's typically broadcast in late December. I'm wondering if Baryshnikov will participate in some way.

David Hallberg has been sending out lots of Tweets about the dinner:

Sara Mearns had posted on her twitter page that she is in D.C. too. Thrilled to read that she is in rehearsal for Swan Lake for the NYCB Winter Season.

Does anyone know if this is live streaming this year? I think it has in the past, and I know parts of segments have been cut for the CBS broadcast.

I can't find anything explicit about online streaming on the cbs.com site.

Sara Mearns was in the audience, and she's been tweeting up a storm. My favorite is this:


And then the moment happened. Makarova came over to me and put her hands on my face like I was one of her own. pic.twitter.com/ZzqUN8Zj


The photo is great. (In an earlier Tweet, she said Makarova told her not to get up, because Mearns would be too tall for her.)

According to this Washington Post article reviewing last night's festivities at the KC, the Makarova tribute portion included excerpts from Giselle and Romeo & Juliet. Hopefully, all of it will be shown on TV.

A short clip of Veronika Part performing the 32 fouettes from SL 'Black Swan pdd' was just shown on the CBS morning show's segment on last night's KC Honors. So it appears that the Makarova tribute performance was a montage of her greatest roles (Giselle, R&J, Swan Lake, etc.) performed by various dancers, explaining why so many current soloists were able to perform in such a short time, flitting in and out of ballets.

Live streaming is a new one on me, which may prove nothing except that I'm ignorant. Where would we see that?

But I think the show runs about two hours in the theater, not counting a twenty-minute intermission (I'm relying on memories of the 2005 Honors, which I attended) so they have plenty of material for the TV program. When I had edited the commercials out of my off-air recording of that, I had exactly 90 minutes left, to the second.
