A Tempestuous Week!

This past week began with “Curtain Up”  at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center.  But back at the Capitol we had a whirwind of a week.  No less than three ballet greats were brought in by Adam Sklute to work with us.  Virginia Johnson, former Ballerina and Ballet Mistress for San Francisco Ballet, Prima Ballerina Evelyn Cisneros-the original Miranda in Smuin’s THE TEMPEST and Kirk Peterson who boasts a huge list of accomplishments including star of American Ballet Theatre and San Francisco Ballet all shared their extensive knowledge with us.  Bravo Adam for adding a new full length, Michael Smuin’s magical THE TEMPEST to the repertoire of BALLET WEST!
