Marge, if you get a ticket, where are you thinking of sitting?

I was hoping it might surround a trip to Cape Cod I am taking in June, but alas... but I am actually thinking of coming up for ABT (either Giselle or Onegin or both), but I am going to tell my friend who lives there about YAGP.

Second ring if there's anything available, otherwise I will take whatever they've got. I'll see what I can rustle up on Sunday; do you want to me get a ticket for you, too? I'll be at LC anyway to exchange my ABT tickets and to see Paul Taylor in the afternoon.
Jose! :swoon::swoon::swoon:

Marge, I am only interested in 2nd ring; if something is available there, get it for me and let me know and we can make an arrangement for me to pay you - maybe at the Worlds shindig. Thanks.

Don't forget: curtain is at 7 PM

If you've never been to the YAGP before, be warned: the audience is mainly teens (all the dancers) and tends to be rather rowdy!

Never been before; I'm looking forward to it. I can be rowdy if need be.

When is YAGP?
Final round of the competition: Thursday, April 26, 7pm
2012 Gala: Friday, April 27, 7pm
Makarova Gala: Saturday, April 28, 7pm



Never been before; I'm looking forward to it. I can be rowdy if need be.
I think what M_S means is, "Bring your noise cancelling headphones or ear plugs." The crowd treats every set of more-than-three turns and every set of jumps as if the lead singer at a rock concert has taken off his sweaty t-shirt and whipped it around overhead until tossing it into the crowd.

Well, I was trying to be diplomatic. :) Let's just say, the audience is mainly composed of teenage dancers who support their friends VERY enthusiastically. :lol:

That's OK; I've been in NY for 40 years. I think I can handle it.

Besides the 3 men I mentioned, we are also supposed to get Ekaterina Kondaurova and Tamara Rojo. Whee!

I exchanged my ABT tickets this morning and got everything I wanted, but I can't say I'm really excited about them this season. I won't be seeing Jose, and I'm not thrilled with all the guest stars, either. The only thing I'm really looking forward to seeing is Misty Copeland's "Firebird" and Semionova's Myrta.
And I've sworn off ABT's Swan Lake for good. (Unless all the men sprain their ankles and Jose steps in to save the day, of course. :lol: )
