I wore flats. There's always so much walking to the Music Center venues from just parking structure alone. I highly recommend wearing either flats or kitty heels..

From beginning to end, this was such a treat for the eyes. The choreography executed by these incredibly gorgeous, technically perfect, yet passionate dancers, each and every one. A joy.
