Leigh's Dance Card - The season begins anew
9/29 Aditi Mangaldas at Asia Society. This was recommended to me by Rajika Puri. She is the "elegant Indian lady in the fur coat" who recommended the Nrityagram dancers to me. That was one of the best performances I saw this year so I take her recommendations quite seriously. She wrote to me after reading my review in Danceview Times and identified herself. I was delighted that she found out how much I appreciated her suggestion. This will be my first time seeing Kathak dance.
9/30 Watching Ligeti Move- All of Christopher Wheeldon's ballets to Ligeti (Polyphonia, Morphoses, Continuum) performed at the same time at the Miller Theatre, Columbia University. The attraction here is getting to see San Francisco dancers (including Yuri Possokhov) that I ordinarily need to fly cross-country to see. It will be interesting to see how the ballets hold up next to each other; they are very similar in many ways.
Upcoming - On the Road
weekend of Oct 7-9 Pennsylvania Ballet in Wheeldon's Swan Lake.

Haven't bought the ticket yet, but pretty sure I will be there for (US) Thanksgiving - 11/24-8 to see NBoC's La Sylphide. Are we going to El Covento Rico?
Kudelka was replaced by Karen Kain, who was Artistic Associate at the time. Scuttlebutt was this had been in the works for a while.
