    Copeland/Bolle Romeo & Juliet from La Scala

    I found this on youtube just now Misty and Roberto. I was lucky to be a supernumerary for Misty Copelands ABT's performance of R&J at Wolf Trap a few years ago. I was one of the Monks and also carried Roseline Capulet in her sedan chair to the ball.

    ABT 2016 DC Tour 1/27-1/31

    I am one of the courtiers in the prologue and all acts. I also am the understudy for the shah, his brother, blue beard and the mandarin. The snow canceled our Fri Sat and Sun rehearsals. We only had one run through with the company on Monday and a tech rehearsal on Tuesday. The dress rehearsal Wed afternoon was still rough, but we got all problems worked out for the opening performance. Our rehearsal ballet masters were Richard Bowman and Rhodie Jorgenson. There is a private La Scala video ABT let us view since we missed our rehearsals so we could learn our spacing with the company.
  14. I was watching the football games this weekend and this Jolly Rancher candy commercial was broadcast during the telecast. http://ftw.usatoday.com/2015/11/rams-rookie-todd-gurley-sings-and-wears-a-tutu-in-hilarious-new-commercial
