From Theodore Bale in the Boston Herald:
Shoes, music and integrityMore from the Herald...
What makes a ballet a ballet? Is it the pointe shoes, the music, the hierarchy of dancers, or some uncertain poetic sensibility?
[Thursday night] at The Boston Conservatory, the student dancers and orchestra forged responses to this big question, offering engaging performances of two premieres along with Fokine’s beloved “Les Sylphides.” Their noble efforts demonstrated that ballet is best when characterized by precision, subtlety and integrity.

A radiant glimpse of talent to come
More from the Globe...
It is hard to envision a more dazzling showcase for the Boston Conservatory’s students than this weekend’s program of dance with live orchestra. The concert adeptly highlights the breadth and depth of the conservatory’s dance training with the romantic ballet “Les Sylphides” and two world premieres created especially for the students by Luis Fuente and Sean Curran.
