PNB Takes over NYC.

I am thrilled to announce that I am the newest contributor to the PNB blog. I am combining my blog writing with an internship with PNB’s Market Department and I can’t wait to see what I will learn from the amazing team.

This week, I will be posting about PNB’s current tour to my hometown, New York City, where we will be performing at City Center. Although the company doesn’t have too much free time, I am packing in as many activities with my family and friends as I can.  It is so good to be home!


PNB is bringing two programs to NYC audiences.

1. An evening of George Balanchine‘s works. What I love about this program is the variety of Balanchine’s styles: from pure classical technique to a neoclassical leotard ballet to a story ballet.

  • Square Dance (premiered in 1957)
  • Stravinsky Violin Concerto (premiered in 1972)
  • Prodigal Son (premiered in 1929)

2. An evening of Contemporary works. This program showcases the athleticism and fierceness of the PNB dancers and innovative choreography from the last decade.

  • David Dawson’s A Million Kisses to my Skin (premiered in 2000)
  • William Forsythe’s The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude (premiered in 1996)
  • Crystal Pite’s Emergence (premiered in 2009)

Here are a few shoots from my first 2 days in the city.
