Nov, 2014 – Musical Wunderkind

Alisa (Voronova) and Michael (Carlson) had a great performance. It was really beautiful. Such an amazing opportunity. I loved seeing backstage and meeting the dancers. Wunderkind is a great program and I hope you continue to offer it. Michael received a lot of great feedback from the audience as he left. I think it makes a lovely connection between the community and the ballet. Thanks again and again for a fabulous evening!!
