How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
there were 2 ballets. actually just one. the first, etudes, was choreographed in 1947/8. it started slowly & became very engaging. twyla tharp is a long time favorite of mine. the second modern dance piece was not engaging. the dancers were narcissistic, no one had a real relationship. all the dancers danced well. i was glad to see both. it's very unusual to see a full program of outstanding dance. the narcissism is reminiscent of our society today. it just didn't involve me.
