Good morning Friends of Ballet des Amériques:
An update on our story: Alex has advanced to the finals of the competition, which will take place this Friday! I’m sure you will join us in rooting for her! We also congratulate Director Carole Alexis for training, coaching and mentoring Alex so successfully for many years and especially in the instensive sessions leading up to this competition. As a reader put it on Facebook: “Bravo à l'élève mais félicitations à l'enseignante qui a su faire émerger le meilleur de l'élève !" ("Bravo to the student and congratulations to the teacher who knew how to bring out the best in the student!”) Thank you also to our friends at Noche Flamenca for allowing us to use their Upper West Side studio near the venue of the competition this week!
