Returning from summer vacation and a fun trip home to Brazil, corps de ballet dancer Jovani Furlan is back on Instagram as this week’s guest photographer.

Our studios are exceptionally busy this week, with the arrival of two répétiteurs from the George Balanchine Trust — Patricia Neary and Peter Frame — who will be staging the company premiere of Episodes. Patricia Neary was hand-picked by Balanchine to join the New York City Ballet, where he later created two key roles on her — in Raymonda Variations and in Jewels. She will use her personal experience dancing several roles to stage Episodes and preserve every last detail of the choreography.

MCB Summer: Jennifer Kronenberg’s BIG APPLE Homecoming

Jennifer Kronenberg

Wrapping up our ‘MCB Summer’ series, principal dancer Jennifer Carlynn Kronenberg writes about her homecoming trip to New York, where her ballet career started in a small, local dance studio in Queens.

What a busy summer this has been for our family! The weeks have really flown by. This summer was extra special —  my first as a mommy — and I have so enjoyed having the extra time to spend with my beautiful baby girl Eva. What a gift! She has grown and changed so much in the last couple of months, and she happily joined us on all of our trips this summer! Carlos and I were so nervous about taking her on her first airplane ride, and worried about how she would handle the crazy schedules of our guest appearances, but she handled everything incredibly well — a little “pro” already!

MCB Summer: Lexie Overholt lends a helping hand in AFRICA!

Lexie Overholt

Corps de ballet dancer Lexie Overholt writes about her eye opening, emotional journey in Africa as part of our ‘MCB Summer’ series.

I left for Kenya and Ethiopia in mid-July for two weeks as a member of the Visiting Orphans organization. My team and I spent our first week with the children of the Fiwagoh Orphanage in Kenya. Most of the children there have lost their parents to HIV/Aids, Malaria,  or other diseases, and tribal wars. Our team helped to provide some of the parental love and care that these children so desperately need. We lived in the orphanage for an entire week, so we got to spend a lot of time with the children. We also traveled to Amazing Grace and Haven of Hope orphanages and played games, sang songs and did arts of crafts with these amazing children.

Summers are always a busy time for me. My husband Blake, my dog Sophie and I always hop in the car and drive far and wide across the southern states. This summer we found ourselves in New Orleans. A place where both of our families have vacationed many times, and the location of our honeymoon.
