"What a Feeling" it is. Thirty years after the film about a young welder with dreams of becoming a professional dancer hit the big screen, Flashdance -- The Musical brings the inspiring story to the stage. Featuring all the hit songs (including the Oscar-winning title track), plus 16 brand new tunes, this high-energy production follows Alex, a "steel town girl on a Saturday night," as she pursues her dance dreams. Just when it seems she's going to make it, a wrong-side-of-the-tracks romance with her boss threatens to derail her goals. This adaptation of the movie that taught women to rock leg warmers includes the Grammy-winning soundtrack smashes "Maniac," "Gloria," "Manhunt" and "I Love Rock 'n' Roll." Learn More

FANTASTIC! This was my second time seeing this production! In the matinee show, the lead dancers had switch character roles. Brooklyn Mack (pictured) was amazing as the slave on Wed, and equally amazing as the pirate on Sun. In fact, the second act alone was worth the price of the ticket! His leaps, turns and stage presence is unmatched. Just watching him walk the front of the stage was to see a panther on the prowl! "Human Missile", indeed. (Wash.Post).

This was the first time I attended a Washington Ballet performance. I was extremely pleased and impressed. Great sets, beautiful costumes, and inspired dancing. A huge well done. If this is the calibre of TWB, I'd recommend it to everyone.
Join the dancers of The Washington Ballet for this swashbuckling adventure of pirates, pashas, and the slave girls who love them in internationally-regarded classical repetiteur Anna-Marie Holmes' thrilling production of the 19th century classic by Marius Petipa. The story of lovers Conrad and Medora, the evil Seid Pasha, and a company of corsairs enchants and excites. Don’t miss this adventuresome company premiere!
