How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The pre-show discussion with the Artistic Director was very interesting regarding the Company's formation, mission, dance style, and intended legacy. The dancing and choreography were fantastic! The music to the second piece was oppressive and greatly detracted from the wonderful dancers' performance! For the third piece on the Samba again we loved the dancing, but this type of music does not lend itself to classical ballet. I lived in Brazil for many years and felt the music was a mismatch. Overall a great experience with a few musical adjustments to be made.
