And I almost forgot… Friday night is the pro Latin competition, meaning Yulia Zagoruychenko and Riccardo Cocchi will be dancing, but I have a ticket to ABT and I really, really need to see my fave Marcelo Gomes dance Oberon in The Dream and Jose Carreno and Diana Vishneva in the pas de deux from MacMillan’s Manon. I may go to MDC Saturday night for the pro Rhythm and Standard, and the professional showdances. I always like Rhythm and you don’t get to see that in the international competitions. Anyway, here’s the info if you’re in NY and want to go. This is the most prestigious ballroom event in the Northeast; all of the top dancers usually compete. I highly recommend it if you want to see great ballroom.
