Guestings, Showcases, & Rehearsals … oh my!

As February comes to a close we are counting down the days until spring!! (just 19 days!) Looking back over the past few months, the dancers at BalletFleming have been very busy.

Dancers of BalletFleming performed with: Budzynski Ballet Theater, Dance DelBello, Tricia Sloan Dance Center, Kristina Pulcini Ballet Academy, Ballet 180, Artisan Dance Company, and Connect the Dots Dance Company.

CABERNET & CHOREOGRAPHY FUNDRAISER

The Cabernet & Choreographer Fundraiser showcase was a success! Many company members showed new choreography and talked to the audience afterward about their process with creating work. Many audience members chose to fund pieces so they will be able to add onto their work. Thank you to everyone that contributed to the choreographers!
