Ballet Verite July 15 at 4:30 pm (Brooklyn, NY)

My brother runs a ballet company in New York.  It's his passion.  He spends all of his free time, energy, and money on it. It's called Ballet Verite.

Here's an article in NY Press about one of his previous works.

And a great blog feature on his first presentation of Ballet Verite in 2009

(And here's my first listing for that show on one of my old blogs:  http://yonkersarts.blogspot.com/2009/03/ballet-verite.html)

This year he's got a showing of his original choreography this Saturday, July 15 at the Mark Morris Dance Center (3 Lafayette Ave in Brooklyn).  
The afternoon of work is called Shalom v'Shalvo, which in Hebrew means Peace & Harmony.

Performers include some stars and up and coming stars from the NYC Ballet world including Robin Gilbert, Gabrielle Grywalski, Ramona Kelley, Yusaku Komori, Jessica Miller, Izabela Szylinska and Jenny Winton.
The showing is at 4:30 pm, and donations are accepted at the door.

I sadly cannot attend this time, so I'm asking my friends in the area to please attend.  It will be fun!

This sounds SOOOOO amazing. It's the kind of thing that makes NYC unparalleled. Hope the performance is everything your brother wants it to be.

I have seen most of his work and it is amazing. What's also amazing is the level of the dancers that he works with.
