What a month it’s been at American Ballet Theatre.

July 6th, 2012 | Jennifer Stahl | More on Pointe
"Breaking Pointe" closed out the season last night heavy on the drama, light on the dancing. Although the finale ostensibly focused on the simultaneous excitement and let down during the close of a run, most of the episode concentrated on Katie's goodbye and Rex and Alison's breakup....Read More
