The Washington Ballet is buzzing, this month, with events in preparation of their Director’s Cut production opens today at The Kennedy Center!
Earlier this month, the Jete Society, a group of young professionals committed to the growth and success of The Washington Ballet, hosted their annual Dine with the Dancers event, at Lost Society, on 14th and U.
The dinner provides an opportunity to enjoy a fabulous meal with the company of the dancers and society members. I was delighted to dine with Ashley Murphy, Daniel Savetta, and Samuel Wilson and listen to their stories of how they chose ballet and what they enjoy most about the art. It was such an amazing and intimate experience! Each season, the Jete Society hosts their beerballet&bubbly series at The Washington Ballet. The night consists of another rare and intimate opportunity to join the dancers, in their studio, as they rehearse snippets of their upcoming productions. Afterwards, the dancers host reception with beer, sparkling wine, and great food, while they mingle with the crowd and discuss everything from ballet to DC’s social scene! There are two remaining events for the season – March 16 and April 27. Get your tickets fast, as they sell out quickly! You will not be disappointed!
The Director’s Cut opens today, Wednesday, February 24th, at The Kennedy Center, and closes with an evening show on Sunday, February 28. This production challenges the ideals of classical ballet with the works of Annabelle Lopez, Ochoa William Forsythe, and Septime Webre.
