  6. 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.

  13. 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

  17. My friend and I had invites to super for Washington Ballet's Swan Lake, but we couldn't make the rehearsals. What messed us up were the extra stage rehearsals this week for Xiomara Reyes and Julie Kent. We were also supers for ABT's Cinderella. I guess I will be watching NYCB next month instead of WB.

  22. The Kennedy Center website has the MB SB listed on the ballet web page and also on the contemporary web page, while a company like Alvin Ailey is only listed on the contemporary web page. My friend went to their master class yesterday and learned some of the choreo from the final ensemble dance. He said it was like "Lots of theatrical attitude, plus a little jazz, a little Travolta...and a hint of the Pony." I was hoping to also take the class but was busy with our local Nutcracker. I will see the performance later today.
  23. SPECIAL EVENT! Meet Mikhail Baryshnikov at "A Russian Evening" on December 11. A celebration with the cast and a Russian menu and entertainment will follow the performance; tickets are $250 at the Shakespeare Theatre Company
  24. Apollo was Natalia Magnicaballi with Michael Cook. A few weeks earlier at the DC Velocity Dance festival Heather Ogden danced with Kirk Henning in Apollo.
