The weather was casual. I wore dress pants and top--leather shoes, jewelry and a cute little purse.

I saw program B and loved it. The choreography was exceptional and the dancing wonderful. I'm going to try and see the A performance as well and I'm not a dancer.

Beautiful and creative modern dance! The opening gala included live cello performance by Zoe Keating, a real treat. I loved this performance and would highly recommend this.
