Pause: Ballet in Washington, DC

This recent article by Sarah Kaufman for The Washington Post speaks so clearly what I have long felt about the dearth of new and interesting ballet in Washington, DC that I felt I should share it here.

Unfortunately, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, DC’s premiere venue for dance performance, perpetuates the belief that the era of ballet is over by hosting the same companies in the same repertories season after season. Yes, the classics sell tickets. I’d like to believe, though, that season ticket-holders and newbies alike would support new companies and new ballets if they were featured in our city.
