Last night was the final performance of my new work All My Favorite People for Cincinnati Ballet. It is my nineth work for the company and probably one of my favorites. I was so inspired by the incredible music of OTR and we were so fortunate to have the band play live for all the performances. Now the company will travel to NYC to perform Hummingbird In A Box, a piece I created for CB to a original score by Peter Frampton. The performances will be at the Joyce Thrater May 6-11.
Sitting in the theatre listening to Over The Rhine do sound check for our show on Friday. The band performes live with Cincinnati Ballet for all three performances! My new work- All My Favorite People opens the program that also includes works by Jodie Gates and Missy Lay Zimmer and Andrew Hubbard. Get tickets now, they are going fast!
There wasn't a dry eye in the room yesterday when Bruce taught his last class as Artistic Director of Louisville Ballet. He thanked the dances for all of their commitment and artistry and was was so moved when each danced in the company formed a line to give him a hug and personally thank him for all he has done for the company.
