I agree with you 100% about the quality of the shows, if the performances in Ft.Lauderdale were anything like the ones at the Gusman in Miami they were very very well done. I agree with you about the first piece, Cristian and David danced really well. Too bad Cristian is headed to Milwuakee Ballet in about a month or so. For that fact there are quite a few dancers that were in that program that will not be joining on next season full-time.
What company are you making reference to in St. Petersburg?? I know of BalletFlorida now being the resident up at TPAC but I am very familiar with the Tampa/St.Pete area and am not aware of another ballet company in that area. Do tell, I would love to know of another dance organization in western Florida. Sarasota Ballet perhaps? But that is way South of Tampa/St.Pete and Clearwater.
Sinicism huh, more of probable reality I think, I assure you that I WANT this new company to exist and be very very successful, anyone who lives down here knows that South Florida NEEDS the added cultural organization. However, my statements about it not lasting were not aimed toward the existence of the company but rather, the current administration. It is working right now just fine which is great but if that changes we WILL come back to this thread
Maybe I am Cynical, God knows I have been called worse
