Is there any more information about these RBS master classes at Alvin Ailey. The five-hour time slot surely will be divided into several classes? How does one book?

isabella, it was stated on an earlier "thread" that the person to contact was Mignon Furman. I did contact her quite a while ago, gave her the name and address and never did receive any information...but hope springs eternal! So give her a call! 212-787-9500 Let us know if you find out anything! :)
