Hello. I happened upon this fascinating ballet forum by chance, very much admiring everyone's knowledge and enthusiasm for the art of ballet. As for me, I'm a Hungarian-born American, recently retired from government work, living in Alexandria, Virginia. I look forward to availing myself of all the cultural offerings that the DC area offers, particularly classical music, theatre and dance. I know very little about the local ballet company but their repertoire seems interesting. Hoping to also catch the Mariinsky and ABT companies at the Kennedy Center.

Welcome to Ballet Alert!, CharlieH!


Washington Ballet's leadership changed:  In 2016, Julie Kent, a long-time American Ballet Theatre Principal Dancer, became Artistic Director, and she and her husband, Executive Director Victor Barbee, also from ABT, and, in my opinion, the repertory has gotten a lot stronger, and there are some terrific dancers in the company.


We hope you'll post about what you see.
