Although I danced in Kentucky (with Lexington Ballet, back in the prehistoric era before Kentucky Ballet Theatre split off) we don't get many reports from Kentucky. Did you save your programs, can you tell us who danced? I know that Louisville and KBT share one family's dancers (Mikelle Bruzina is in Louisville, Kara in KBT)
I also noted on KBT's website that David Goud is guesting with them (he used to be a principal with Louisville) - did he dance in Dracula?
And for those of you seeing other company's we don't usually get to hear about, report in!

David Goud played Dracula. He was wonderful. I was actually really impressed with the strength and talent of the male dancers in Lexington. They have a small company but what they don't have in quantity, they more than make up for with Quality. Ariel was wonderful as well. He also has a v. strong presence on the stage. Rafeala was Elizabeta. She is so strong technically. All of them were just wonderful to watch. They make it look so easy.

I do know, that sadly Frank Galvez and Lucia Montero are leaving Lexington Ballet after this season, and I'm not sure what will become of the school after that. They really were the heart and soul of the school and the company.
I haven't seen a KBT performance in a long time, but as long as Rafaela is dancing, I'm sure it's worth it. I actually had to get out an old Nutcracker tape just to see her recently.
