Loved the show. We went there expecting traditional ballet. The show was very innovative. Use of colors for costumes was unconventional, yet bold and beautiful. Great choreography, co ordination. Full of energy.

We enjoyed it thoroughly and...continued

The first piece was wonderful. The two following dances made fun of classical ballet and were low-brow in their rather obvious humor.

Two of the three ballets were very good and interesting choreography.Great sets and costumes,particularly the last ballet with black and white graphic backdrop and rainbow colored costumes. Dancing was good, not great.

Throughly enjoyed this innovative, elegant performance! Loved the color and clean lines of the first piece, with a video screen that dared you not to be hypnotized by it, followed by a humorous short ballet performed by four spectacular, very...continued

First act was SPECTACULAR! Contemporary ballet at its finest. Second act was campy and silly. Third act, I was expecting something more traditional, but it was a cross of wanting to be comical while mainting its integrity. There were good...continued

Whilst the ballet critic in the LA times did not enjoy this performance we loved it- we are not ballet afficionados but we enjoyed the combination of the movement the music and the great choreography

The program consisted of three different ballets. The first one the company danced to Philip Glass music. The dance was lovely, but the music was more of an annoying distraction than an integral part of the ballet. The second piece was short and...continued

Spectacularly excellent all the way around. First, the seats were absolute center in Row L of Orchestra. Could not have been better for dance. Second-everything about the 3 dance pieces was beyond wonderful. The sets and design, the colorful...continued

3rd piece was quite beautiful. Entire event with 2 intermissions was slightly under 2 hours.

Nice 3 vignettes, well done and enjoyable with an intermission in between each one.
It was not classical ballet, but modern dance and some jazz with the ballet which was creative. The picture used for this event is not one of the dances.

The last performance or 3rd was my favorite with such lovely waltz music. I am not sure if those were Strauss' compositions?

My mother and I were so sad that we missed the opportunity to see Black Swan but I have to say, this was quite the satiating experience I did not expect. It was a stunning performance by the entire group that included a bit of beautiful,...continued

One of the best ballet companies and choreography I've seen in years. Loved the sense of humor they infused when appropriate. The male dancers are so often the weaker gender in ballet troupes but these male dancers were superb. I am a trained...continued

I found it most enjoyable. The first one, Amoveo I didn't care much for the music, but the dancing was good. Le Spectre de la Rose and Les Sylphides were terrific. Loved the dancing and the choreography.

Even though the performance was wonderful, I only rated it 3 stars because it was much too short! The three pieces totalled 1h05! What kind of a show is that? Considering the ticket price and $9 parking, this is outrageous! I wrote to the Dorothy...continued
