Most of these new partnerships are tested for the first time in Vail, several weeks or even days in advance of their debuts. For this reason, mornings [...]

Yesterday afternoon, my mother, sister, and I had a visit with Una Kai. Una was one of the very first Balanchine ballerinas. She told us about how she got started in dance, and how she ended up with Balanchine. After dancing as principal with Balanchine for a while, she became the ballet mistress. Una brought [...]

International Evenings I

3 years agoArts / Dance : The Winger

I suppose since this last weekend’s events have always been billed as International Evenings of Dance the variety that came to life onstage should not have come as too much of a surprise. I have always loved going to galas- the excitement of flipping through your program to see what comes next, the tangible rise in audience [...]

Join SFB for the AIDS Walk of 2011!

3 years agoArts / Dance : The Winger

When I was living in Germany it was very hard to become involved in any type of community work due to the fact that I didn’t speak the language.  I often saw the Hamburg Ballet involving itself in work that supported important causes, and it was something I didn’t want to forget.  I remember sitting [...]

End of the Year Performances

On June 3 and 9, The Rock School performed at Longwood Gardens and the Merriam Theater, respectively. At the gardens, we danced on an outdoor stage with large hedges as wings, and a fountain behind us. The stage had uneven spots, which was a little unnerving, but it was a beautiful day and it was [...]
