With The One and Only Mr. Franco De Vita! Mr. De Vita and I go way back! He was one of my teachers at American Ballet Theatre's Summer Intensive when I attended at the ages of 17, 18, and 19.
And here stands Mr. Raymond Lukens, co-artistic director of the ABT National Training Curriculum, and I. I call him The Walking Encyclopedia of Ballet and Beyond!
Noticed all our turn-outs in the pictures...?
It was an honor to spend my summer exploring and perfecting my ballet knowledge under these two legends of ballet. I am now an abbasodor of their wisdom!
