Chava Lansky for Pointe Magazine writes, “The Kennedy Center’s fifth annual Ballet Across America festival runs from May 28-June 2, and it shines a spotlight on women’s creativity and leadershipby presenting two female-led companies: Dance Theatre of Harlem and Miami City Ballet. May 28-30, audiences can see DTH in George Balanchine’s Valse Fantasie, Dianne McIntyre’s Change, Claudia Schreier’s Passage and Geoffrey Holder’s Dougla. June 1-2, MCB presents Balanchine’s Walpurgisnacht Ballet, Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Carousel Pas de Deux, the jointly choreographed Brahms/Handel by Jerome Robbins and Twyla Tharp, and Justin Peck’s Heatscape. On May 31 the companies come together for a shared program; dancers from both ensembles present the world premiere of Pam Tanowitz’s Gustave Le Grey No. 1 to a score by Caroline Shaw.”
