As we bring our calendar to a close, I marvel at what our dancers have done this year and at their tenacity, courage, and strength. Beginning 2018 with the Jerome Robbins Centennial and continuing on with a world premiere of Brian Brooks’ One Line Dawn, the dancers did not have much respite with a final program of Apollo before their touring began. In six months, our dancers have traveled to six different cities to perform: Charleston, Paris, Naples, New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. And all of this amidst their already-demanding repertoires in our home theaters in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach. In the midst of 22 Nutcrackers now, I can only imagine the extent of their exhaustion. I am filled with pride and honor in knowing that I support great artists who have done so much with their art form. Thank you, dancers, for all you do. Bravo, merde, and best of luck with the final Nutcrackers. You are the center of this great company.
