hi im planning a trip to rockvile MD in late june early august this year to visit family. i was wondering if abyone knew of any ballrt performances to see at that time.
i have checked the kennedy centre website and its seems that there will no ballet on during july and i would imagine its a bit of an off month for ballet but if anyone can think of anything for me to do / see while im there it would be very helpfull.

Sorry, jude, not much going on here during the middle of summer. At least not in ballet. You can come and see the School of the Washington Ballet's end of the Summer Intensive Workshop Performance if you like smile.gif That will be on July 25 and 26, at the studios.

Not sure we are talking about the same thing here, jude. We do our Spring Concert at Lisner Auditorium on the campus of George Washington University in downtown DC, but the Summer Intensive Workshop performance is held at the school of The Washington Ballet. The Spring Concert is in May, the Workshop is at the end of the summer course, which is late July this year. Last year it was early August.

Call me at the school, or come by and see us when you are in town smile.gif I can give you the information on the performances. They are not publice performances, as it is part of the summer workshop. But you could attend as a guest. The phone number for the school is 202-362-3606. Ask for me, and you will get my voice mail if I'm not in the office at the time. (I'm rarely in my office, always in the classroom wink.gif ) Leave me a number where I can call you back.
