This was my first visit to the Cowles Center. It's very nice. The 4 different dance pieces in the Fall Rep were all very different from each other. The variety was amazing. The classical ballet was beautiful. The modern dance piece was unique, curious, charming and funny. The Gregory Hines tribute piece was very....Gregory Hines.
