BalletFleming “Tapas” premiere

Hi everyone
Sorry to be slow in my writings as of late.
In starting a new ballet Company you have more jobs to do than you even imagined.
The Performance on Sunday, which was the Philadelphia Premiere of my new company BalletFleming went great.

We were more than sold-out and the theatre had to add 2 rows of seats. This was a nice relief, when five days earlier we had only sold half the house.

The Program was a mix of works in order to give the audience an idea of our potential. You’ll find the program below.

The Next step; is organizing the “Steering Committee” to build a board for the company. Finding a theatre to present a Fall and Spring production in the 2011/2012 season and getting a day off.
