Have you been wanting to learn ballet but have little or no previous training? Maybe you took dance as a child or a young adult, but never pursued it seriously? Or, maybe you just never had the right opportunity to get started?

We have heard from corps de ballet dancer, Michael Breeden, about the ballets that he is looking forward to performing most next season. Now, principal dancer Jeanette Delgado weighs in!
Next season is going to be thrilling! There are some oldies (but goodies) as well as some brand new works! I am looking forward to a lot of the ballets like Richard Alston’s ‘Carmen’ and Justin Peck’s new work, as well as ‘Raymonda Variations and ‘Allegro Brillante’, which are both beautiful Balanchine ballets the company has not performed in a while.
Not many people can say that they’ve been on “America’s Favorite Quiz Show” Jeopardy! But, our very own Grants Associate Leah Blumenfeld can! We asked Leah to give us the inside scoop on this unique, once in a lifetime experience!
See how Leah does on Jeopardy! Tune-in Monday, May 19th at 7:30pm!
Getting to be a contestant on Jeopardy! is a long process. You could say it took me about ten years. I really started making the effort as soon as they began using the online test as part of the process. It’s about 30 questions and takes roughly five minutes and then that’s it. You wait and hope you did well enough to go into the contestant pool, and if you’re really lucky, you become one of the 2,000-3,000 hopefuls who get called for an in-person audition.Read More›
