In the Big Apple

Vail Youth Ballet Company dancers visited New York City during their winter break to further their dance education and experience the excitement of the Big Apple. They attended master classes with Wendy Whelan; Daniel Ulbricht, principal dancer New York City Ballet; Chip Abbott, choreographer of the Broadway musical "On the Town;" and Jonathan Widham, former student of Vail Valley Academy of Dance who is now a hot New York City dancer and choreographer. They took a backstage tour of the Koch Theatre at Lincoln Center, saw the New York City Ballet "Romeo & Juliet" and went to "Wicked" and "On the Town". These VYBC dancers will be featured in a Spring Showcase Sat. March 7 at Homestake Peak at 5 p.m. Suggested donation at the door is $10 to Friends of the Dance who are committed to raising money for youth dance education in our community and financially responsible for this special performance.
