#3 i wish i could see it too!
I LOVE this! the choreography is amazing and both dancers are amazing. What's the girl's name? I know the guy is Conner Walsh. He sometimes dances with my school(BalletNova) in our Nutcrackers because his mom is a teacher there. She teaches me and is such an awesome! I wish Houston Ballet could come to Northern VA or D.C. and perform this! Stanton Welsh's choreography is beautiful!
