Hello TWB friends

The Washington Ballet corridors are not so quiet anymore as we hit the ground running to SEDUCE your senses this season with enthralling dance!

First, we’ve had the pleasure of welcoming new company members for the 2012.2013 Season. I hope you will join me in welcoming our newest Company members: Kateryna Derechyna, formerly of the Grand Rapids Ballet Company; Caroline Diane, formerly of the San Francisco Ballet; Nicole Haskins, formerly of The Sacramento Ballet; Hyun-Woong Kim, formerly of the Korea National Ballet Company; and Melih Mertel, formerly of Istanbul State Opera and Ballet, who begin their first season as TWB Company members. Ms. Derechyna, Diane and Haskins and Mr. Kim and Mertel join resident Ccompany members Kara Cooper, Aurora Dickie, Emily Ellis, Zachary Hackstock, Jonathan Jordan, Sona Kharatian, Tamás Krizsa, Corey Landolt, Brooklyn Mack, Andile Ndlovu, Jared Nelson, Maki Onuki, Morgann Rose and Luis R. Torres. Each of these artists brings with them added energy and excitement and have already dedicated countless hours in the studio conditioning and rehearsing in preparation to seduce your senses this season.

Speaking of excitement and energy, it’s a delight to have The Washington School of Ballet back in session. The studios are filled with young artists eager to train and develop their movement and performing skills. From Creative Movement to Professional Training Program students, the amount of focus and enthusiasm for ballet technique and conditioning grows with each class. Along with our TWSB classes, Adult Classes are now in session and open to anyone interested in beginning or advancing their movement technique.

The Ballet has been extremely active all over the District as we are gear up for several memorable events.. Beginning with Subscriber Open Rehearsals, Jeté Society’s BeerBubblyandBallet, inthewings: Ballet with a Bite, The Dracula Soirée and then unto an unprecedented two-week run of Dracula at The Kennedy Center there are many ways to celebrate the new season. I highly recommend The Dracula Soirée, (October 5 at the beautiful National Museum of Women in the Arts. It is a highlight of Washington’s fall social season and attracts many influential dignitaries and arts patrons. You’ll be treated to cocktails, a buffet supper, live and silent auctions, and performances by your favorite ballet, The Washington Ballet. It is the perfect way to begin the season and get into the Dracula spirit. Learn more about the Sponsorship Levels and event tickets HERE!
